MIAMI (CBSMiami) – The trial of the alleged shooter of Washington Redskins star safety Sean Taylor has been delayed again.

Miami-Dade County Courts said the trial of 23-year-old Eric Rivera, Junior will not begin on Monday as was previously scheduled.

The delay was due to scheduling conflicts and availability of witnesses.

Taylor was murdered six years during a botched robbery of his home. Rivera and four other suspects from the Ft. Myers area have been charged with the killing.

A fifth suspect pleaded guilty to murder and burglary charges.

Rivera and the other four defendants pleaded not guilty and will be tried in separate trials. All face a possible life sentence if they’re convicted.
