SURRY, Va. (AP) - The trial of suspended NFL quarterback Michael Vick on state dogfighting charges has been delayed.
Vick was scheduled to stand trial on April 2. The Surry County Commonwealth Attorney's office says no new date has been set yet. The trial will be rescheduled on March 25.
Vick is serving a federal 23-month prison term in Leavenworth, Kansas. Officials had already delayed the trials of co-defendants Quanis Phillips and Purnell Peace. All three pleaded guilty to federal charges of conspiring to run an interstate dogfighting operation on land owned by Vick.
The delays are based on the logistics of transporting the men back to Virginia, which is the responsibility of the local prosecutor's office.
