OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — A judge has delayed the murder trial for a former Marine charged in the death of four people, including a prostitute featured on an HBO reality show.

The murder trial for David Tyner had been set for April 9, but a judge has delayed the trial until May 21 at the request of both prosecutors and defense attorneys. Tyner faces six first-degree murder charges — four for the adults who were killed and two additional charges because two of the victims were pregnant.

One of the victims, Brooke Phillips, was a prostitute featured on the HBO show “Cathouse” about a legal brothel, the Moonlite BunnyRanch, near Carson City, Nev.

Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty for Tyner, who has pleaded not guilty. has disabled the comments for this article.
