KENNEWICK, WA (AP) - The case of a Kennewick man who is accused of killing a man who was dating his estranged wife is stuck in limbo as it waits to get in front of an appellate court.
    
Judge Cameron Mitchell allowed prosecutors to upgrade the charge in December 2014 to first-degree murder, which would carry a longer prison sentence, after 40-year-old Matthew de Vore attempted to plead guilty to second-degree murder at a previous appearance.
    
De Vore is accused of stabbing 45-year-old Thomas R. Christian in November 2014 in the waiting room of a plasma donation center in Kennewick.
    
The  case has been on hold for more than a year and the earliest it will be scheduled before the state Court of Appeals is March.
