MANCHESTER (KWWL) - The trial for Jesse Fierstine is now set for May.

He's accused of using a pocketknife to cut out his father's pacemaker. Trial had been set for February 3, but Fierstine is now scheduled to go to court May 5.

Family members say the attack happened because Fierstine is bipolar and wasn't on his medication.
