The second trial of convicted killer Nicholas Sheley is being delayed once again. Sheley is accused of killing eight people in Illinois and Missouri in 2008. He was supposed to stand trial for the murder of 93-year old Russell Reed of Sterling on June 11th, but his attorneys say they're not ready.

They asked for a delay because they're waiting on DNA test results. The judge agreed to the continuance and set a new trial date for September 10th. Last year, Sheley was convicted of killing 65-year-old Ronald Randall in the alleged spree. Prior to his arrest, he was on the run from police but was eventually captured in Madison County.
