TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - An upcoming trial for a Topeka man accused of kidnapping and raping an 8-year-old child has been delayed.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1FhbNwg ) Jeremy James Lindsey faces several charges, including rape, aggravated kidnapping and aggravated burglary stemming from the alleged kidnapping and sexual assault of the child in September 2014 in southeast Topeka.

His trial was scheduled to start Monday, but was delayed when Lindsey sought to fire his attorney, who also had filed a request to withdraw from the case.

His new attorney is Don Hoffman. A new jury trial date will be scheduled Thursday.

A co-defendant, 24-year-old Michelle Harris, is charged with aggravated kidnapping and aggravated endangering of a child. Harris will next be in court Sept. 9 for a pre-trial hearing.
