The trial for accused cop killer Davon Lymon will be pushed back.

Lymon is accused of murdering Albuquerque Police Officer Daniel Webster during a traffic stop in 2015.

His murder trial was expected to begin May 11.

Last month, Judge Briana Zamora ruled there was a conflict of interest with Lymon’s public defenders at the time, and disqualified them from the trial. 

Lymon brought his new attorneys, Tom Clark and Gary Mitchell, to court Tuesday.

Gary Mitchell has handled very high profile cases including that of Michael Astorga, who was convicted for the killing of Deputy James McGrane during a 2006 traffic stop.

Tom Clark represented Andrew Romero who was sentenced for killing Rio Rancho Officer Gregg Benner. 

Judge Zamora says there will be a hearing to discuss Lymon’s new trial date on April 26.
