The trial of 21-year old Clayton Whittemore of New Hartford has been delayed.

The Monroe County District Attorney's Office says the trial has been pushed back to January 27th.

It had been scheduled to begin on November 4th.

Whittemore is charged with second-degree murder in the death of 18-year old Alexandra Kogut of New Hartford.

He's accused of beating Kogut to death inside her College of Brockport dorm room last September.
