MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — The trial for a former Fort Riley soldier charged with killing a member of the Kansas National Guard has been delayed until August.

Jury selection for the first-degree murder trial of 26-year-old Daniel Parker was scheduled to begin Monday in Riley County District Court.

KMAN reports (http://bit.ly/14ljCPp ) the trial has been continued until Aug. 19. Authorities indicated Monday one of Parker’s attorneys, Ron Evans, suffered a medical emergency on Monday.

Parker is charged with killing 21-year-old Frederick Beverly outside a Manhattan motorcycle group’s clubhouse on New Year’s Day in 2012. Prosecutors say Parker fired from a passing car at the clubhouse after having a disagreement earlier in the night with a member of the club.
