RACINE, Wis.-- The trial for a 29-year-old man accused in a triple homicide in Racine in 2005 has been postponed.

Juwan Tyrae Matthews, of Racine, is one of two men accused in the deaths of Ryan Lockridge, Aaron Woods and Frank Mister.

Investigators say the 23-year-olds were fatally shot July 17, 2005 in a parking lot because of a dispute about a dice game.

The Journal Times reports Matthews was to go on trial Jan. 27. But a judge granted his attorney's request to postpone it because he hadn't been able to talk with several witnesses.

Woods' mother, Mary Helena, says she didn't mind the delay "as long as there's justice in the end."

No new trial date is set. The trial for co-defendant Demetrus Ozier's remains on Jan. 27.
