An Odessa man, accused of killing his baby, will have to wait for his day in court.

The trial for John Bailey has been pushed back again.

Bailey is charged with capital murder for the 2008 death of his five month old son, Dustin Wright.

Police say the infant was kicked and thrown around, ultimately killing the child.

District Attorney Bobby Bland says a vital witness had a medical emergency which caused the delay.

A new trial date has not been set.
