THIBODAUX, Louisiana — The first-degree murder trial for a man accused of stabbing a Lockport woman and her two daughters has been delayed for the fifth time.

The Daily Comet reports (http://bit.ly/1K5aNDu) David Brown, of Houma, is now set for trial Sept. 12. He is charged in the Nov. 4, 2012, deaths of 29-year-old Jacquelin Nieves and her daughters, 7-year-old Gabriela and 1-year-old Izabela.

Prosecutors say Brown is also accused of raping Jacquelin and Gabriela Nieves and setting the family's apartment on fire. They are seeking the death penalty.

Lafourche Parish First Assistant District Attorney Kristine Russell said the prosecution and defense asked for this continuance because of new reports from Brown's attorneys and to allow time for possible medical examinations of Brown.

The trial was originally set for March 10, 2014, but continued four times for various reasons.
