MANSFIELD, La. (KNOE 8 News/AP) - The start date for the capital murder trial of a Keachie man accused in the death of a 12-year-old Stonewall student has been pushed back to March 11.

The delay is to give prosecutors and the defense team time to prepare following the revelation last week fingerprints only recently identified as belonging to the victim, Justin M. Bloxom, were matched to one previously taken from Brian Horn's cab.

DeSoto Parish sheriff's investigators say the vehicle was used to transport Bloxom from a friend's house to the location off U.S. Highway 171 near Stonewall where his body was found on March 30, 2010.

Horn faces kidnapping and first-degree murder charges. He's pleaded not guilty.

The state will seek the death penalty if Horn is convicted.
