Clay County Federal Corruption Trial Delayed

Two former Manchester city officials charged in a federal drug case will have to wait a little longer to face a jury.

The trial for former 911 director Vernon Hacker and former assistant police chief Todd Roberts was moved to February 26th, 2007.

It was originally scheduled for December 5th.

The change comes after a judge granted a request by prosecutors to disqualify Hacker's attorney.

A new attorney was appointed to represent Hacker.
