FALL RIVER, Mass. (AP) — The murder trial of former New England Patriots player Aaron Hernandez has been delayed again due to snow.

Yet another snowstorm hitting New England is expected to dump several inches in the area, prompting the court to delay Monday’s start until 10:15 a.m.

There already have been 5.5 snow days since jury selection began in the trial Jan. 9.

Hernandez is charged with the 2013 killing of semi-professional football player Odin Lloyd, who was dating his fiancee’s sister.

A Sprint employee is expected back on the stand when court resumes Monday. He testified Friday about several text messages and phone calls exchanged between Hernandez and one of his co-defendants.

He also testified about calls made to Lloyd from the co-defendant’s phone shortly before he was killed.

For the planned short days, Garsh probably has other judicial matters that she still has to attend to. That’s generally the case. Most American judges are not able to clear out all of their duties to focus on only 1 case. That said, she does cut off days early when prosecution runs out of witnesses at the court house. That’s on her. Some judges run a tight ship, and attorneys KNOW they need to have backup witnesses available in case proceedings run quicker than expected.

Why does it seem like this trial is delayed or cut short every day? I remember watching the Pistorious trial in what seemed like a full day every day of the week from beginning to end. I understand snow delays, but why does it seem like the days are being cut short all the time? It seems like Judge Garsh is trying to extend this and drag it out as long as possible.
