The trial for the Juneau man facing murder charges after a fatal car crash last summer has been pushed back again.
During a pretrial hearing on Thursday, public defender David Seid requested the trial for Ryan W. West, 26, be reset for May. The 10-day trial was scheduled to begin March 12.
Seid told the judge he is still waiting to receive DNA test results, which he called imperative to the defense. He said there is also an issue involving an out-of-state witness, and more time is needed for motions as well as possible hearings.
