LAS VEGAS, Nev. (FOX5) – The murder trial of Robert Telles, the former Clark County official accused of murdering a local journalist, has been delayed once again.

The trial, which was initially set to begin on Monday, March 18, will be pushed once again as attorneys work to sort through evidence related to a bribery investigation on Telles.

During a hearing on Tuesday, it was revealed that state prosecutors and Telles’ attorney, Robert Draskovich, would be swapping information related to the bribery investigation. According to the state, there are about five terabytes of information on the case that will be passed along.

Additionally, reporters, as well as members of the I.T. department, from the Review-Journal will be joining the team organized to search the devices.

Telles will be due back in court for a status check on March 26 at 10:30 a.m.
