Trial delayed for a man accused of killing Taiwanese woman

A Louisiana trial has been delayed again for a man accused of fatally stabbing a Taiwanese woman who had just received a graduate degree from the University of Louisiana at Monroe.

The Monroe News-Star reports that 33-year-old Quinton Tellis is now scheduled for trial in Ouachita Parish on August 29 in the 2015 slaying of Ming-Chen Hsiao.

Court documents show that Tellis has waived his right to a jury trial and will be tried by a judge alone.

He has previously gone on trial for the burning death of 19-year-old Jessica Chambers, but jurors have twice deadlocked regarding that 2014 Mississippi killing.
