Get flash to see this video, or turn javascript back on

The jury trial for the man accused of two Arcata murders and one attempted murder in Eureka has been postponed to give the new attorney in the case more time to prepare.

Bodhi Tree plead not guilty to the shooting deaths of Christina Schwarz and Alan Marcet in Arcata in May, and the attempted murder of another man just a few days prior.


Tree received a new attorney after his previous attorney was unable to work the case after suffering from a heart attack. Tree agreed in court to withhold the trial date until December 20th.
