The Morristown Citizen Tribune is reporting that unless Carmelo "Carmen" Vences moves up the court docket, he won’t return to Hamblen County to face a first-degree murder charge until June.

Vences, a 43-year-old Mexican national, allegedly shot his wife and the mother of his five children, Adelina Delasancha, 40 at a baptism party on Mother’s Day.

Vences’ initial appearance in Forsyth County (N.C.) Superior Court is currently scheduled for June 5, a court spokeswoman said this morning. It remains unclear whether the extradition hearing will occur at that time.

Vences remains incarcerated without bond at the Forsyth County Detention Center in Winston-Salem, N.C.

Morristown police say there about  10 eyewitnesses that identified Vences as the man who shot Delasancha to death at the party in a rented building on Spencer Hale Road.
