Burnett County, WI (Northland's NewsCenter) --- The trial for an accused killer in Sawyer County has been delayed until June.

Christopher Roalson's trial is now set to begin on June 6 for the 2009 murder of 93-year-old Irena Roszak.

The 28-year-old Roalson and 16-year-old Austin Davis were both charged with first degree intentional homicide and felony burglary in what police called a satanic thrill killing.

Davis has since pleaded guilty to second degree intentional homicide.
He was sentenced to 25 years in prison.
