HARRISON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) - The trial for capital murder suspect Alberto Garcia has been postponed. Instead of starting next month, it now begins in January.

Garcia is accused of killing 5-year-old Janaya Thompson in 2004.

Sources also tell WLOX News Now that a judge recently denied a defense motion to move the trial out of Harrison County.

Garcia, his defense attorneys and prosecutors participated in a status hearing on Wednesday, focused on the upcoming trial.
