LAS VEGAS (AP) — Trial has been reset to June 2015 for a 23-year-old man accused of sexually assaulting and killing a Las Vegas mother and daughter, and nearly killing their husband and father in a bloody hammer attack.

Court records show that Bryan Devonte Clay Jr.'s defense attorney, Tony Sgro, and prosecutor Pamela Weckerly sought more time to prepare, and Clark County District Court Judge Jessie Walsh granted the delay.

Clay's death penalty trial had been due to begin this month.

He's accused of attacking and killing Ignacia "Yadira" Martinez and 10-year-old Karla Martinez in April 2012, and leaving Arturo Martinez with a severe head injury.

Martinez's two sons, ages 9 and 4, were spared in the attack.

Authorities say Clay told detectives he was under the influence and didn't remember anything.
