William David Miller's Indiana trial for attempted murder of Gravel Switch drug kingpin Mike Hays has been postponed until at least June.
Miller, of Lancaster, is set to be sentenced Feb. 26 in U.S. District Court, along with Hays and members of both their families who pled guilty to drug conspiracy charges.
During the federal trial of Miller's son, David Scott - who was found not guilty - Miller testified that he shot Hays in the back of the head at a Shellmart in Odon, Ind. Miller said Hays had made threats to his family and that he did it because he feared for his life.
Hays didn't testify at the trial.
The federal case has hampered preparations for Miller's attempted murder trial in Indiana said Mike Chestnut, Miller's Indiana attorney.
Many of those who would be witnesses in the Indiana trail were also defendants in the federal drug case, and getting depositions had been a problem, Chestnut said.
