SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) - A judge has rescheduled the trial of a Sioux City man accused of killing his roommate.

Woodbury County District Court records say 39-year-old Abdiqadar Sharif had been set to go on trial next Tuesday. He’s pleaded not guilty to a charge of second-degree murder in the Oct. 28 slaying of 40-year-old Guled Nur.

The records say the defense and prosecution asked for more time to prepare for the trial, so last week the judge set a new starting date of July 30.

Prosecutors say Sharif stabbed and kicked Nur after an altercation broke out at their apartment.
