BENTONVILLE, Arkansas — A prosecutor says an upcoming motions hearing will be rescheduled for a man charged with killing his 6-year-old neighbor in northwest Arkansas.
Zachary Holly was supposed to have a hearing Friday in Bentonville.
But prosecutor Van Stone said Thursday that the hearing would be postponed because Holly's attorneys have a scheduling conflict.
It's not clear when the hearing will be rescheduled, but Stone said Holly is still set to stand trial in April.
Holly has pleaded not guilty to capital murder, rape, kidnapping and residential burglary in the 2012 death of 6-year-old Jersey Bridgeman.
Jersey's death ended a short life marred by abuse. Her father and stepmother were sentenced to prison after being convicted of chaining her to a dresser in 2011.
Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty for Holly.
