Lawyers are hoping to set a new trial date for the only person charged in connection with the killing of Colorado corrections chief Tom Clements.

Twenty-two-year-old Stevie Marie Vigil is accused of giving a handgun to former inmate Evan Ebel, the only suspect named in the slaying. She had been scheduled to go on trial Monday but now her lawyer is asking for a delay because of the large amount of evidence in the case.

In a motion last month, lawyer Daniel Smith says he and prosecutors have started discussions "concerning potential resolution" of the case but he needs to be able to go over the evidence before wrapping up those talks. Clements was shot when he answered his door March 19. Ebel was killed days later in a shootout in Texas.
