The second delay of a trial for Nicolas Guaman, who is accused of hitting and killing a Milford motorcyclist with his truck in 2011, has sparked a contentious reaction amongst Milford residents.
Guaman, an Ecuadorian citizen who is reportedly in the U.S. illegally, is facing numerous charges in connection with the death of Milford's Matthew Denice in 2011.
The bench trial for Guaman had originally ben set for April 3, but was rescheduled to Wednesday, May 8. A judge, however, determined that the trial would need to be delayed again until at least Monday, May 12, as the court sought an appropriate interpreter.
Dozens reacted to the news on Facebook and on Milford Patch, and the following comment was posted to Justice For Matt, a Facebook page set up in honor of Denice on Wednesday:
"I feel like I'm in the movie Ground Hog Day. Spent the entire day in court only to have the trial delayed again."
Milford Patch will provide updates on the trial as they become available.
