ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – The trial has been delayed for the man accused of killing a 5-year-old Espanola girl.
Malcolm Torres is charged with the murder of his step-daughter, Renezmae Calzada, whose body was found in September in the Rio Grande outside of Espanola.
Earlier this month, both sides asked a judge to set a longer timeline for trial. According to court documents, evidence includes recordings, phone records, and more than 30,000 photos.
Tuesday, a federal judge agreed the complexity of the case would require more time. The trial is now set for October of next year.
