(AP) - The trial of a southwest Missouri man accused of killing his 8-month-old son has been delayed for the third time.
Eddie Salazar was scheduled to go to trial Monday for second-degree murder in the February 2010 death of Eddie Salazar Jr.
However, a Jasper County judge last week granted another continuance and scheduled the trial for Jan. 23. The Carthage Press reports that Salzar's attorney is contending that Carthage detectives lied when they told Salazar he failed a polygraph test, prompting him to confess to his son's death.
Jasper County Prosecutor Dean Dankelson said no one lied to Salazar.
A massive search was launched after Salazar reported that masked men broke into his home and kidnapped his son.
The boy's body was found three days later in Spring River.
