CHRISTIANSBURG, Va. (AP) - The trial of a former Virginia Tech student charged with murder in the death of a 13-year-old girl has been postponed.
David Eisenhauer, of Columbia, Maryland, was scheduled to stand trial next month in the 2016 killing of Nicole Lovell of Blacksburg.
The Roanoke Times reports that a judge on Wednesday granted a request from Eisenhauer's lawyers to put off the trial for several months.
His defense team won a delay after one of his lawyers said during a court hearing Wednesday that forensic experts need time to review raw data from at least 17 phones, computers and other electronic devices in the case.
Natalie Keepers, of Laurel, Maryland, also a former Virginia Tech student, is charged with being an accessory. Her trial is scheduled to begin in February.
