The Hutchinson News reports that the Jan. 15 trial for 36-year-old DaJuan L. Wilkerson has been postponed and a new trial date has not been set.
Wilkerson has pleaded not guilty to charges of attempted second-degree murder, aggravated battery on a state correctional officer and trafficking contraband into a correctional facility.
