There are delays again in the trial of a former Midland soldier accused of raping and killing an Iraqi girl.

A teleconference to set the trial for 22 year-old Stephen Green was postponed, because of a scheduling conflict.

Another hearing will be held next week in Louisville, Kentucky.

Green is charged with rape and murder in the deaths of a 14 year old Iraqi girl and three others in her family.

If convicted, Green could get the death penalty.

Four others who served with Green have been convicted in the March 2006 attack.
