Retrial in Randolph County Killings Set for February

POCAHONTAS, AR - The retrial of a man accused of killing a Dalton family 10 years ago has been pushed back to February.

The trial for Billy Dale Green had been scheduled to begin today.  Green was initially sentenced to death for the killings of Carl Allen Elliott, his wife Lisa, and their two children, 8-year-old Felicia and 6-year-old Gregory.

Last year, the Arkansas Supreme Court overturned Green's conviction and ordered a new trial.  Prosecutors are also seeking the death penalty against Billy Green's son, Chad Green, who had pleaded guilty to first-degree murder in the case.  A judge reinstated capital murder charges against Chad Green after prosecutors said he violated the terms of his plea agreement.
