Eric Koula Trial Delayed Until April

Friday, December 2nd, 2011 -- 1:37 PM

The Eric Koula double homicide trial has been delayed until April.

The decision was made today, just days before the trial was scheduled to start next Monday.

The Neillsville High School graduate is accused of killing his parents, Dennis and Merna Koula, at their home outside of La Crosse. The alleged crimes happened last May.

WKBT-TV in La Crosse reports Koula?s defense team requested the delay to allow an expert to analyze DNA evidence returned Thursday from the Wisconsin State Crime Lab.

The judge agreed and rescheduled it until April 16.

Prosecutors say Eric Koula, a struggling day-trader, shot and killed his mother as she worked on the computer and his father as he arrived home from work.
