The trial for a man accused of killing a Northern Illinois University student has been delayed until April.

The Daily Chronicle reported that a judge delayed William Curl's trial again on Monday. Judge Robbin Stuckert gave prosecutors more time to hire and prepare a forensic psychology expert. The 36-year-old Curl is accused of killing freshman Antinette "Toni" Keller, a Neuqua Valley High School graduate from Plainfield, in October 2010. Her burned body was found in a park two days after she went missing.

Curl's trial was scheduled for Dec. 3, but was rescheduled for Jan. 14 so Curl could be fitted for hearing aids. It is now scheduled to start April 11.
