GARDEN CITY, Kan. (AP) -- The trial for a Garden City man charged with stabbing another man to death will not begin until next year.

Thirty-four-year-old Fred Schmidt Jr. was scheduled to go on trial Monday for first-degree murder and other charges in the March 2011 death of Jeffrey Nichols.

Finney County Attorney Susan Richmeier says the trial was delayed after Schmidt's attorney, Kristi Cott, requested a continuance until the first of the year.

The Garden City Telegram says (http://bit.ly/1fF7amy ) Nichols was killed during a fight with Schmidt. Forensics reports indicated that Nichols was stabbed 45 times.

Schmidt pleaded not guilty, claiming self-defense.
