TWIN FALLS -- A hearing to decide whether a Twin Falls man will face a trial on a charge of voluntary manslaughter following a stabbing death has been delayed until next week to give a recently assigned special prosecuting attorney more time to prepare.

The Times-News reports that the hearing for 21-year-old Cayde Lish is now set for next week.

George Gunn, an Ada County deputy prosecuting attorney, was appointed to the case on Nov. 13 after Twin Falls County Prosecutor Grant Loebs asked for a special prosecuting attorney.

Gunn then asked for the hearing to be delayed so he could have time to adequately prepare.

Twenty-four-year-old Jerimiah Paiz died Oct. 6 of stab wounds at the Canyon Crest Dining and Event Center, located on the rim of the Snake River Canyon.
