The trial of a Binghamton man accused of murdering his estranged wife and her friend in March of last year is being pushed back to July.

Judge Joseph Cawley has approved a request for adjournment to allow the lawyer for 40 year old Aaron Powell more time to go over additional information on issues like recent rulings on collecting DNA evidence.

Jury selection for the double murder trial was scheduled to begin May 16.

Powell is accused of strangling 35 year old Christina Powell in her Lisi Lane home in the Town of Binghamton and bludgeoning 24 year old Mario Maciarelli.

Christina’s friends had become concerned after not hearing from her around March 22nd.

Authorities broke into her home in the upscale neighborhood and found Maciarelli’s body on the second floor and the woman’s body in the basement.

Authorities launched a manhunt for Aaron Powell that lasted five days before he was found outside a convenience store in Springville Township in Susquehanna County, Pennsylvania.

He is charged with first and second degree murder and faces a maximum sentence of life in prison if convicted.
