High-profile Valley murder case postponed

Posted: Updated:
PHOENIX (CBS5) -

A Valley murder case that's drawn national attention is being pushed back nearly a year.

One of the attorneys for defendant Jodi Arias withdrew from the case.

The change means the trial won't start until October.

Arias is on trial for the 2008 killing of her former boyfriend Travis Alexander.

His body was found in the shower of his Mesa bathroom with his throat cut from ear to ear, a gunshot wound to his face and 27 stab wounds all over his body.
