Moultrie murder trial delayed

MOULTRIE, GA (WALB) - The Colquitt County murder trial of Blake Samples  has been pushed back to February of 2015.

The trial was scheduled to begin Monday but has been delayed so blood of the victim Dusty Carroll can be tested.

Carroll was shot at the home of Samples' ex-wife on April 28, 2013.

He drove himself to the hospital where he died.

Samples has contended the shooting was in self-defense.
