Pasco Murder Trial Postponed

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, Wash. - A murder trial is postponed for a Pasco man extradited from Mexico.

Lawyers said they need more time to prepare for Carlos Villanueva-Garcia's case. Prosecutors accuse Garcia of murdering 34-year-old Miguel Cortez back in 2004.

They said they're still trying to get a hold of the eyewitness who identified Garcia in Mexico.

His new trial is set for August 8th.
