Racine triple homicide trial postponed


RACINE (AP) -- The trial of one of the men accused in a 2005 triple homicide case from Racine has been postponed.

29-year-old Juwan Tyrae Matthews is one of two men accused in the deaths of Ryan Lockridge, Aaron Woods, and Frank Mister.

Investigators say the 23-year-olds were fatally shot July 17, 2005 in a parking lot because of a dispute about a dice game.

The Journal Times reports Matthews was to go on trial on January 27th, but a judge granted his attorney's request to postpone it because he had not been able to talk with several witnesses.

Woods' mother, Mary Helena, says she didn't mind the delay "as long as there's justice in the end."

No new trial date is set.

The trial for the co-defendant Demetrus Ozier is still on January 27th.
