Waterloo murder trial moves to next year


The retrial of a Waterloo man charged with killing a teenager and wounding two others has been reset for next year.

Wyatt Johnson was granted a mistrial in August after about a week of testimony.

His trial was supposed to start this week, but was moved to Jan. 17. This is the second time his trial has been delayed. 

He is charged with first-degree murder and attempted murder.

Authorities say he stabbed Kevin Garcia to death and wounded two others during a fight in 2009.

Johnson's attorneys say he was acting in self-defense.
