Trial for first of four suspects involved in April murder postponed

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - The murder trial for the shooting death of a Columbus rapper has been postponed.

28-year-old Eric Spencer was the first of four people arrested in the April killing of 32-year-old Branden Denson outside of a Pizza Hut.

Police are still searching for a fifth suspect in this shooting.

The trial was originally set to begin on Dec. 10, but there is no word on a new start date.
