A hearing for the man accused of murdering Breanna Schneller is pushed back. Raul Ponce-Rocha was scheduled to be arraigned in court Wednesday, but the hearing will now take place August 17th.

Ponce-Rocha's defense attorney had a scheduling conflict.

Ponce-Rocha is charged with first degree murder in Schneller's death. In June, a judge ruled there is enough evidence for him to stand trial.

18-year-old Schneller was found dead in her Wausau apartment May 2nd. Authorities say she died of multiple stab wounds to the chest and neck.
