Hate crime trial postponed

The trial of two eastern Kentucky men charged with a hate crime and attacking a gay man has been postponed indefinitely.

The judge delayed proceedings for 20-year-old Anthony Ray Jenkins of Partridge and 37-year-old Jason David Jenkins.

The U.S. Attorney's Office says David and Anthony Jenkins kidnapped a man in Harlan County and severely beat him because he is gay.

The trial was scheduled to start Monday in London.

A new date has not been set.
