ELKINS, West Virginia — The trial of a Randolph County teenager accused of killing a classmate has been delayed because the alleged weapon was lost.

Eighteen-year-old Thomas Chevy Vas' trial was scheduled to begin Tuesday. The Inter-Mountain (http://bit.ly/1uFKDh6 ) reports that Randolph County Circuit Court Judge Thomas Keadle on Friday granted a defense motion to continue the trial until December.

Defense attorney Timothy Prentice and prosecutor Michael Parker told the judge that the West Virginia State Police couldn't find the knife allegedly used to stab 17-year-old Dustin White.

Parker later told the newspaper that he's looking into the situation.

Vas is accused of killing White in October 2012 outside the Tygarts Valley High School football stadium about 20 minutes before a game. Both were students at the high school.
