The murder trial for a man, who once survived a deadly home invasion, has been delayed.
Mitchell Turner is charged in the beating death of 53-year-old Gary Deaton.
Turner's trial was supposed to begin Monday. A new trial date has not yet been set.
Police say Turner and Deaton spent an afternoon drinking together last year in Madison County when the murder happened.
Turner is scheduled to be back in court for a hearing in December.
Turner survived a violent attack in 2006, in which Margaret Faye Jackson was killed.
