Judge denies motion to postpone trial

JACKSON, Tenn. (AP) - A court has denied a defense request to delay the trial of a man accused of killing three people in a state Transportation Department garage in Jackson.

The judge this week decided to exclude a ballistics report, rather than delay the scheduled September 18th murder trial of David Lynn Jordan.

Circuit Court Judge Robert Morgan Junior told attorneys it's been a long road to trial and the court needs to proceed with it.

Jordan is accused of going to the T-DOT garage where his estranged wife worked and fatally shooting her, a state Agriculture Department worker and a deliveryman.

Two other people were wounded in the attack in January 2005.
