North Carolina, NEWTON, NC – The judge in the trial of a Florida man accused of killing a state trooper in North Carolina has refused to go along with the requests of the defense and prosecutors to postpone the trial.

The Asheville Citizen-Times reported both sides wanted to delay the trial until after the state Supreme Court decides to request a delay Edwardo Wong. But Superior Court Judge Nathaniel Poovey said Wednesday the trial will start after the final alternative is selected.

Opening statements could begin Friday if the jury had selected last Thursday.

The Ormond Beach, Florida, man is charged with first-degree murder in the 2008 shooting death of Trooper David Shawn state Blanton Jr. during a traffic stop on Interstate 40 near Canton. Wong’s study is taking place in Newton.
