Full court calendar causes trial delays

The trial of Michael Rodriguez, 25, of Sunnyside has been delayed for a second time.

Rodriguez was scheduled to go to trial in Yakima County Superior Court on Monday, March 6, on a charge of first degree murder of Rosendo Barron Hernandez of Sunnyside, who was fatally shot on a Sunnyside street Dec. 24, 2005.

That court date was re-set to March 7, but a full court calendar makes it seem unlikely that his trial will be held then. A spokesman at the Yakima County Prosecutor's office conjectured that it could be April before the case is heard.
