NEW HAMPTON (AP)-Trial for a New Hampton man charged with first-degree murder for a fight at a Charles City bar that left one man dead has been delayed.

Forty-three-year-old Richard Cortez was to stand trial this month for the May 2008 stabbing that killed one man and left two others injured.

Trial has been rescheduled for April 21.

Twenty-eight-year-old Kenyon Armstrong died at a local hospital after the fight outside Tori's bar. A 23-year-old man and a juvenile also were stabbed but survived.

Cortez also is charged with two counts of attempted murder as well as five other charges.
