Accused killer of four-year-old boy may not be tried for a year or more

The man charged with murdering a four-year-old Louisville boy may not go to trial for another year or two.

Monday morning, Cecil New's attorneys and prosecutors requested more time to gather and review evidence in the case.

Judge Judith McDonald-Burkman granted the prosecution permission for DNA testing on New.  He is accused of killing Ivan Cano in June of 2007.

Ivan's body was found in a garbage truck not far from his home.

A trial date is expected to be set at the next court date in late August.  Prosecutors plan to seek the death penalty if New is convicted.
