Monday the trial of 42-year-old Michael Landrum was set to get underway. However, it has been continued.
Landrum is charged with the murders of 52-year-old Ida Little and her three-year-old granddaughter, Mikayla. His case is now expected to go to trial in February in Marengo County.
Meanwhile, 22-year-old Jeffrey Napier from Lisman, Alabama has already been sentenced to life in prison for the murders.
Last summer Little and her granddaughter were found shot to death inside her Linden home.
