PIERRE, S.D. (AP) — Officials have postponed a January trial in adult court for a 17-year-old Pierre boy accused of murder.

The South Dakota Supreme Court earlier this month ordered a circuit court judge to reconsider whether Braiden McCahren should be tried in adult court. His two-week trial that was to begin Jan. 21 has now been called off, and attorneys have scheduled a bond hearing and two motions hearings in the coming weeks.

McCahren has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder and other charges in the shooting death last Dec. 18 of 16-year-old Dalton Williams in McCahren’s home, when McCahren was 16.

Judge John Brown ordered McCahren to stand trial as an adult rather than as a juvenile, but the Supreme Court sided with defense attorneys on appeal and ordered Brown to reconsider.
