LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) — Seth Fontenot’s trial on charges of murder and attempted murder has been delayed for a fourth time when a Cameron Parish judge agreed to push the trial from Sept. 22 to Dec. 1.

The Advocate reports retired District Judge Hadley Ward Fontenot signed off on the delay Monday while sitting in for Judge Edward Rubin, who was unable to preside at a hearing. That hearing also was delayed and has been rescheduled for Sept. 22.

Fontenot was an 18-year-old freshman accounting major at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette when he allegedly shot and killed 15-year-old Austin Rivault on Feb. 10, 2013.

The other boys also were hit and sustained minor injuries. Fontenot said he believed the youths were trying to break into his truck.
