    I can't find anything media-wise. And his online case file doesn't show updates. I'm wondering if that's due to the gag rule because his most recent misdemeanor file has timely docket entries. It's a good question as to how we would know when the hearings happen...?

    Thanks a bunch Lorena! I knew there was something wrong when no one was reporting on the "ongoing trial".

    so - from the article you just posted:

    The trial of a west Arkansas man accused of killing a woman along with her two children and uncle last year has been delayed until March 2019.
    The Polk County prosecuting attorney said Monday that the defense needed more time to prepare for trial....
    His trial is scheduled for the weeks of March 18 and 25, 2019, according to the Polk County clerk.
