It’s been nearly seven years since a Johnson City man’s body, riddled with stab wounds, was found inside his burned home on East Fairview Avenue, but the murder trial for a man charged with the death has met another delay.

Poncho Delgado, 44, is charged with first-degree murder and aggravated arson for the May 25, 2006, death of 41-year-old Robert Curtis. Delgado allegedly told a relative that he killed a man who had been messing with his nephew.

Delgado’s trial was scheduled to begin Monday, but after a brief hearing Friday, Criminal Court Judge Robert Cupp reset the trial for March 25.
