Christensen trial dates due by midnight

CHAMPAIGN COUNTY, Ill. (WCIA) -- The prosecutors and defense attorneys have until midnight to give a proposed schedule for Brendt Christensen's trial.

He's accused of kidnapping and killing UI scholar Yingying Zhang.

The federal government is seeking the death penalty and the U.S. District Attorney says that's why they're not against delaying the trial, but it's still up to a judge to determine if the trial will be pushed back.

By midnight, both parties have to announce when they believe the trial should start and how long it will take. A judge will look over the dates on Monday.
