A murder suspect’s trial date has been postponed.

Clifford Baca, 20, had been scheduled to go to trial on May 26. He’s accused of first-degree murder in the 2004 slaying of Amber Robinson.

On Monday, attorneys asked for a postponement.

Prosecutor Donna Mowrer cited “ongoing negotiations,” as the reason for the postponement.

Baca is being held on a $150,000 cash-only bond in the Roosevelt County Detention Center.
