    ARKADELPHIA, Ark. (AP) - The trial of a man charged in the killings of an Arkadelphia man and his two young stepdaughters is being postponed.

    Riakos Lizana II is charged with capital murder in the Dec. 6 deaths of 4-year-old Marley Crutchfield, 6-year-old Adiele Crutchfield and the girls' stepfather, Bobby Jean Galbraith.

    Lizana was scheduled to have a pretrial hearing on Tuesday, but trial court assistant Lanna Clark says that hearing is being pushed back.

    Lizana's trial was scheduled to begin in October, but Clark says that's also being postponed.

    It wasn't immediately clear when the hearing and trial would be rescheduled.

    Lizana's lawyers filed paperwork in Clark County last week asking a judge to continue the court dates.
