Prosecutors seek delay in Hot Springs murder trial

HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (AP) - Prosecutors are seeking a delay in the upcoming trial for a man accused of killing a Hot Springs Village police dispatcher.

Kevin Duck is scheduled to go to trial July 22, but prosecutors filed a motion Thursday seeking to push back the trial until November. In the motion, prosecutors say they're still awaiting evidence from the Federal Bureau of Investigation that's needed for the trial.

A judge has not yet ruled on the request.

Duck is charged with first-degree murder for the 2011 death of his girlfriend, Dawna Natzke, who worked as a police dispatcher and was a mother of three.

Authorities say Natzke was last seen with Duck at a Christmas party. Searchers found her body days later. An autopsy says Natzke died from blunt force trauma and drowning.
