COLUMBUS, GA (WXTX) –   Michael Curry's murder trial will begin Monday. He has been a suspect since the August 1985 murder of his wife and two young children.

His pregnant wife, Ann, their four-year old daughter, Erika, and their 20-month old son Ryan were murdered with a bush axe almost 26 years ago at their home on Rockhurst Drive.

The district attorney at the time said there was not enough evidence to charge him. However when District Attorney Julia Slater came into office, presented the case, and Curry was arrested in May 2009.

The trial was originally set for October however the defense has filed numerous motions saying things have not been handled correctly.

We will keep you updated this week with the trial.
