Judge delays trial in boy's slaying
Placeholder Image
BRUNSWICK - Another delay is pushing back the death penalty trial of a man charged with sexual assault and murder in the 2007 slaying of a 6-year-old Brunswick boy.

Superior Court Judge Stephen Scarlett has ordered jury selection in the trial of David Edenfield to begin Sept. 21, nearly two weeks later than a date the judge scheduled months ago.

Edenfield, along with his wife and adult son, are charged with the March 2007 slaying of young Christopher Michael Barrios.

This is the second delay for Edenfield's trial. The judge had originally scheduled it for May, but pushed the trial back to September because of a lack of state funding to pay for Edenfield's defense.
