Update: Trial postponed for Salisbury murder suspect Douglas Harlow

In court Friday, a motion was granted to postpone the trial of Douglas Harlow who is accused of murdering a man and burying him behind a Fruitland home.

The state requested the postponement since they still have not received the medical examiners report of the body that was found.

His trial date was supposed to start at the end of May, but will now be scheduled sometime before the middle of July.

Authorities allege that Harlow killed Ronnie Mackert after a night of drinking last February.

Harlow is charged with second degree murder, first and second degree assault, reckless endangerment and disposing of a body in an unauthorized place.

If found guilty on all counts Harlow faces more than 70 years in prison.
