Prosecutors: Delay likely in Granger murder trial

Prosecutors: Delay likely in Granger murder trial
YAKIMA, Wash. -- A delay is likely for the trials of five people accused of killing a Granger man.

Only two of the people were going to be tried together. That would mean a total of four trials using the same prosecutor and judge.

But now the judge has decided to conducting two trials at a time which means a second prosecutor and second judge are needed.

Prosecutors fought the decision, but the judge overruled it. That could still be appealed.

They're accused of murdering Jose Correa who was found beaten in a ditch.

Some of the suspects also face kidnapping, robbery or arson charges. It's unclear if they'll be tried together on those counts.
