Wednesday marked two years since police say former state board of education member Kathy Taft of Greenville was attacked in a home in Raleigh. She died from her injuries two days later.
The man that stands accused in the brutal murder of Taft is Jason Williford. Last month Williford entered not guilty pleas on the murder and rape charges.
The trial had been scheduled to start this week but Williford's attorney asked for a delay. The trial is now set to begin April 9th.
