Teenager's Murder Trial To Be Delayed Again

Posted: Updated:

Kennewick, WA- The trial for a West Richland teenager charged with murder has been pushed back again.      

Donald Schalchlin is accused of killing his mother and sister a year ago.

The teenager's trial has been delayed once already because of the slow process of DNA testing.

Today, after prosecutors and the defense attorney mutually agreed, sheriff's deputies took another set of Schalchlin's fingerprints to compare with prints discovered on a bloody cell phone.

 Superior court judge Craig Matheson says he'll set a new trial date when the results of this test return, which should be sometime next month.
