MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- The capital trial of a Memphis man charged with fatally shooting his girlfriend and her parents has been postponed until June.
Sedrick Clayton's trial on three first-degree murder charges had been scheduled to start Monday with jury selection. However, due to the death in the family of one of the prosecutors, the trial has now been moved to June 9.
Clayton faces the death penalty if convicted of gunning down girlfriend Pashea Fisher and her parents in her parents' home in January 2011. Authorities say Clayton got into an argument with Fisher before shooting her parents in their bedroom, then killing her.
Police say Clayton's 4-year-old daughter was in the house at the time, and that he took her with him before turning himself in hours after the shooting.
