LAS VEGAS (AP) - Trial has been postponed until February for the former mixed martial arts fighter named War Machine on charges that he tried to kill his porn actress ex-girlfriend and her friend in Las Vegas.

Jonathan Paul Koppenhaver had been scheduled for trial next week on 34 felony charges also including battery, sexual assault and coercion in the August 2014 incident.

The 34-year-old Koppenhaver is already in a Nevada prison, serving 1 1/2 to four years on a probation revocation in a prior felony attempted battery case.

Koppenhaver could face life in prison if he’s convicted of attacking ex-girlfriend Christy Mack and her friend, Corey Thomas.

The Associated Press usually doesn’t identify alleged victims of sexual assault, but Mack has allowed her name be made public. Her legal name is Christine Mackinday.
