SANTA FE (KRQE) - The trial of a man investigators say threatened to kill Governor Susana Martinez has been delayed.
James Sanchez, 61, is charged with five misdemeanors for telephone harassment against the governor and her staff.
Those alleged treats stem from a battle over cows.
Sanchez says the cows are allowed to roam on the roads and on his property near Belen putting his family in danger.
He says when the livestock board refused to help him he went to the governor's office but only ran into more frustration.
That's when he allegedly threatened the governor.
He maintained he only threatened to ruin her politically.
Sanchez was supposed to go on trial Wednesday, but the defense was granted more time to prepare.
As he has in other court hearings, Sanchez had plenty to say Wednesday.
"Please ask the governor why she refuses to force laws that protect my children, please ask her, thank you," Sanchez said.
Sanchez's trial has now been set November 14th.
Sanchez has remained in custody since his arrest after the state argued he was a danger.
