LAFAYETTE - A state district judge has postponed until next summer the death penalty trial of a 38-year-old Kaplan man accused of killing a pizza delivery driver four years ago. Aaron Orlando Richards was scheduled to stand trial July 7 on a first-degree murder charge.

Richards is accused of stabbing Timothy Falgout to death in March 2010 as the Pizza Hut driver was making a delivery to a home in Lafayette Parish. If found guilty, Richards faces the death penalty or life in prison.

On Monday, Judge Edward Broussard postponed the trial because of a delay in getting government money to pay to retest DNA found at the crime scene. Initial DNA tests implicated Richards. Broussard set the new trial for July 6, 2015. SENT: 365 words.
