Guam - Accused murderer Keith Garrido's trial has been pushed back as the defense has filed a motion for an expert witness. The defendant is accused of breaking into a Barrigada home and then brutally beating Nancy Mafnas, leaving her to die, as he stole $7 from her purse and her car.

Garrido also faces criminal charges of attempted murder, felony escape and more for escaping from a Department of Corrections transport vehicle and breaking into a home and beating and robbing a woman.

The court will have a hearing on January 21 for the motion.

Meanwhile he is set to find out when he will go to trial for the escape case during a criminal trial setting set for January 27.
