Craigslist murder suspect Richard Beasley's trial pushed back to February due to new attorneys

AKRON, Ohio - The trial for craigslist murder suspect Richard Beasley is going to be delayed.

Beasley was supposed to go on trial on capital murder charges the first week of January, but his case is now being shifted a month later to Feb. 19.

Beasley has recently hired new attorneys and they needed time to prepare.

Beasley is accused of putting bogus help-wanted ads on craigslist then robbing and killing men when they responded.

Stow teenager Brogan Rafferty has already been convicted in the case.
