Ruesga Trial Delayed

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, Wash--  The trial for a Pasco teen charged with murder has been pushed back two weeks.

16 year-old Christopher Ruesga's new trial date is now set for July 15th, after his attorney asked for more time Thursday in a Franklin County courtroom.

Ruesga is being tried as an adult for second degree murder in the shooting death of 38 year-old Eutimo Martinez-Vivero during a street fight between rival gang members.
