SILVER CITY, N.M. (AP) - The trial of an Albuquerque youth charged with murder in the shooting death of his father on a southwestern New Mexico hunting trip is being delayed.

The Silver City Sun-News reports that defense attorney Stacy Ward says a key witness isn't available to testify in July when the trial of Thomas Manning had been scheduled.

The judge presiding over the case in District Court in Silver City has erased the trial date in July but hasn't yet a new date.

Manning is now 18 years old. He was on a hunting trip to the Gila National Foest in November 2010 when he allegedly shot Jeffrey Manning in the back of his head.
