ODESSA - New information on the case of Zachary Dominguez, the five year old who was murdered in Odessa nearly two years ago.

26-year-old Ralph Martinez is charged with capital murder and will have to wait a few more months before he gets his day in court because his attorneys feel they aren't adequately prepared.

In fact, we're told they still need to interview at least 100 more witnesses.

Back in February of 2011, police say Martinez and his girlfriend, Kimberly Moore, after Moore's five-year-old son Zachary, was taken to the hospital with bruises, burns and open sores.

He died from cardiac arrest.

Investigators say Zachary's three-year-old sibling showed signs of sexual abuse.

Martinez's trial has been rescheduled for April 29, 2013.
