Springford Murder Trial to be Delayed

One of the highest profile murder cases in recent Montgomery memory, the Springford double murder case, is now going to be delayed.

Despite three years of waiting and countless court hearings, Brent Springford's defense team has asked the judge to delay his January trial. The court agreed to the request.

This is an about face for the defense team, who at this time last year pressed the district attorney's office to indict Springford or free him from jail.

After the DA indicted Springford, the defense said it only needed time to perform a psychological evaluation on their client and to examine the DNA evidence turned over by the state.

Now, no one knows when the case will move forward.

The state says it doesn't want to wait long.
