MANSFIELD, La. (AP) - Unresolved pretrial issues could mean more delays in the case of Brian Horn, charged with first-degree murder in the 2010 death of a 12-year-old boy from DeSoto Parish.

At a hearing Wednesday, Judge Robert Burgess granted defense and prosecution attorneys new deadlines for briefs concerning a motion to suppress evidence. And the defense filed three new motions this month, according to The Times (http://bit.ly/Ih1Fvx ).

The trial currently is set for August.

Horn is charged in the death of Justin M. Bloxom of Stonewall.

Prosecutors say he was lured to a meeting by someone posing as a young girl in cellphone text messages.

At issue in Wednesday's hearing were defense motions to suppress evidence, including a cellphone and SIM card recovered after Horn's arrest.
