The trial for Nicolas Guaman, who is accused of striking and killing a Milford man with his truck in 2011, was delayed for the second time on Wednesday. 

Guaman, an Ecuadorian citizen who is reportedly in the U.S. illegally, is accused of allegedly striking and dragging Matthew Denice, a Framingham State University graduate and Milford resident, on Aug. 20, 2011 in Milford

Wednesday's trial began around 2:30 p.m. in Worcester Superior Court on, but a judge determined that the trial would need to be delayed until at least Monday, or when the court could find an appropriate interpreter, MyFoxBoston reported. Guaman's trial was originally set for Thursday, April 3, but was delayed to this week.

Guaman's defense attorney claimed the facts aren't in dispute but that the degree of his responsibility are, according to MyFoxBoston.

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."

Editor's Note: This article was originally published on Wednesday, May 7, and has been updated to clarify that, according to MyFoxBoston, the judge has delayed the trial until at least Monday. Milford Patch will provide more information on the trial as it becomes available.

Karl are you for real or do you just like to hear yourself spew big words?

New bait, new strawman by kalman berke. Now we are all KKK fascist "Tea Baggers". You have just shown us all, who exactly is the real bully, name calling, hater here? Peace out.

If he needs an interpreter, then how has he been communicating with his lawyers?

Ah, good, a whole new group of Milford residents gets to experience Kalman. As I have advised on other comment sections, please just ignore him - he enjoys spewing hate to elicit a reaction and it is not worth your time. He already hates me, it's all good - I haven't lost any sleep over it.

Marsha, I think you're right. I wonder -- and I'm being totally serious here -- if Kalman is mentally ill. I mean, when someone makes KKK references and then claims he never called anyone a racist, what are we to think? He also clearly is filled with hate. I hope he doesn't have access to weapons -- he could be the next Karl Pierson. Perhaps we should just all ignore him lest he spin out of control and become the subject of news articles instead of just an obnoxious commenter.
