Two trial dates have come and gone for Michael Rodriguez of Sunnyside, who is being held in the Yakima County Jail on a charge of first degree murder.
Rodriguez's first trial date was Feb. 27, but that was reset for March 7. Because of full court calendars, his trial has now been moved to May 15.
Rodriguez is accused of first degree murder following the fatal shooting of Sunnyside resident Rosendo Barron Hernandez, 29, on Dec. 24, 2005 at the intersection of Ninth Street and Harrison Avenue.
