LIMESTONE COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

A judge is delaying two murder trials that were set to begin this week.

District Attorney Brian Jones presented late evidence Friday in hearings for murder suspects Kenny Dewayne Adams and Patrick Alan Turlington. The judge agreed to delay the trials and give defense attorneys the chance to prepare with the new evidence.

Adams is accused of stabbing his cousin to death on Dec. 31 2012 in an argument over a set of borrowed DVDs. Authorities said Adams stabbed Yancey Metz Foster with a pocketknife at a Blackburn Road mobile home park.

Turlington is charged with first-degree assault and three counts of reckless murder in the June 2011 fatal wreck on Alabama 20 in Limestone County. Authorities said Turlington's vehicle crossed the median and was involved in a three-vehicle wreck in which three people were killed and another injured.

Both trials have been delayed until May 5.
