WHITE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — The trial date for a man accused of murdering his mother and half-sister has been moved again.

David Rodenbarger, 22, was set to go to trial in October. A motion for continuance was filed by Rodenbarger’s attorney earlier this week.

The motion was granted and the trial has been moved to May of 2015.

Rodenbarger is charged with murder in connection with the deaths of his mother Michelle Haskins and his 6-year-old half sister Jillian in February 2013.

In May, the White County Prosecutor’s Office filed paperwork showing their intent to seek a sentence of Life without Parole. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
