Trial is reset for a Wichita Falls teenager accused in the fatal shooting of a grocery store owner last year.

Clifton John Russell IV was expected to go to trial for capital murder next week, but 89th District Court Judge Mark Price will be out of town, so the trial will be rescheduled.

A new trial date has not been set.

Investigators say Russell admitted to entering Mo's Grocery on Old Iowa Park Rd. in January 2012 and fatally shooting "Mo" Ahmad.

He says Michael Graves was his accomplice and served as a lookout at the front door while he went inside.

Graves is also charged with capital murder and will go to trial after Russell because he is the alleged shooter.
