BEATRICE, Neb. -- A Nebraska judge has continued the murder trial involving Joshua Keadle. The trial was supposed to get underway in Gage County on September 16.
No new trial date has been set by the court.
In late July, Keadle's trial was moved from Nemaha County to Gage County in Beatrice.
Keadle is charged with first-degree murder in the death of Tyler Thomas, a student at Peru State College whose body has never been found.
The case against Keadle alleges that on or about December 3rd, 2010, he killed the 19-year-old student.
Keadle is serving a 15-to-20-year prison sentence for 1st-degree sexual assault, in a Dodge County conviction.
He received that sentence in February of 2012 and is serving the sentence at the Tecumseh State Prison.
