MOUNT CLEMENS, Mich. (AP) - A trial has been delayed for a man accused of killing a 14-year-old girl along a popular suburban Detroit nature trail.

The Macomb Daily of Mount Clemens reports (https://bit.ly/1NjEWgN ) the delay is because assistant Macomb County prosecutor William Cataldo is taking over the case after Therese Tobin, the office’s chief trial attorney, accepted a position as a federal administrative law judge.

Thirty-three-year-old James VanCallis’ trial, originally planned next week, now is set to start Oct. 14.

VanCallis is charged with first-degree murder, kidnapping and assault with intent to rape in the death of April Millsap. Authorities say the St. Clair County man hit her with a motorcycle helmet and stomped on her in July 2014 while she was walking her dog along Macomb Orchard Trail in Armada.
