CUSHING, Okla. (AP) - A man accused of killing three people in February has been granted a second delay in his arraignment.
A judge on Friday granted 21-year-old Robert Chad Lansford-Barela a delay until Oct. 22 to accommodate his defense attorney, Leon Woodyard. Woodyard asked for more time to prepare.
Lansford-Barela is charged with three counts of first-degree murder and prosecutors have said they intend to seek the death penalty.
Lansford-Barela is accused in the Feb. 17 shooting deaths of 19-year-old Elizabeth Hueser, 27-year-old Douglass Peck and 21-year-old Albert Sernas.
All three victims were found dead in Peck's home in Cushing.
Police testified at an earlier proceeding that Lansford-Barela admitted to the shootings.
