The retrial date of a man originally convicted of murder in the shooting death of a Des Moines woman in 1996 has been delayed again.

David Flores spent 15 years in prison after being convicted of killing Phyllis Davis during a rolling gun battle. Flores always protested his innocence and in 2009 his conviction was overturned based on new evidence and he was awarded a new trial.

Flores was released in March on a bond of $500,000 until his new trial, which was originally set for May 7th. The trial has been delayed several times since.

Tuesday the trial was continued but a new date won’t be set until Oct. 4th.
