LAS VEGAS (AP) - A death penalty trial has been reset to 2017 for a 26-year-old man accused of sexually assaulting and killing a Las Vegas mother and daughter, and nearly killing a husband and father in a bloody hammer attack four years ago.

Bryan Devonte Clay Jr.’s trial had been set for next week. But court records show that Clark County District Court Judge Jessie Walsh reset the date next February after discussions with both sides about the time it’ll take.

Clay faces murder, attempted murder, kidnapping and sexual assault with a weapon charges.

He’s accused of attacking and killing Ignacia “Yadira” Martinez and 10-year-old Karla Martinez in April 2012, and leaving Arturo Martinez with a severe head injury.

Two boys, 9 and 4, were spared.

Clay told police he didn’t remember anything.
