BEAVER A trial for a man accused of attacking two sheriff's deputies has been delayed until at least next year.
Court records indicate DNA test results have not come back, so Sioneone Takai's trial on charges of aggravated assault by a prisoner will be delayed. Takai is also demanding a new lawyer but a judge denied that request, court minutes said.
Takai is one of three state prison inmates who attacked the deputies while housed at the Beaver County Jail on March 10. It came after the Utah Department of Corrections yanked all of its first-degree felons in the aftermath of an escape in Daggett County.
Takai was serving time for second-degree felony robbery. Trials have also been delayed for co-defendants Christopher Olague and Samisoni Kefu, court records said.
