Levi King trial is expected to begin Thursday

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - The capital murder trial delayed on Monday in order to await DNA test results is expected to begin in a Lubbock court room on Thursday.

26-year-old Levi King faces the death penalty for a triple murder in 2005.

Police say he killed Brian Conrad, his pregnant wife Michelle and her son Zach inside their home south of Pampa.

The trial was moved from Gray county to Lubbock county because of extensive media coverage.

It was set to begin Monday, but King's attorneys say DNA test results that they needed were not yet ready.

A bailiff now says the trial will begin Thursday.

King was previously convicted and sentenced to life in prison in Missouri for two separate slayings.
