Steele’s Trial Delayed Until April 26

Update (via Meghann Cuniff Twitter): Edgar Steele's new trial date is April 26. Judge says it will be held in Boise.

A murder-for-hire trial has been delayed.  Defense attorneys said they are not ready and the trial could be delayed between 30 and 45 days. Edgar J. Steele is charged with hiring a hit man to kill his wife and mother-in-law. Steele's wife insists her husband is innocent and has been set up by the government because of his anit-Semitic, white supremacist views and for representing clients such as Aryan Nations/Nicholas Geranios, AP.

Question: How can the defense not be ready when this alleged crime took place in mid-June 2010?
