JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A judge has delayed the trial of a man charged with attempted murder in the September shooting of former Jacksonville Jaguars offensive lineman Richard Collier.

Circuit Judge Mallory D. Cooper scheduled a pretrial hearing for April 21 after the defendant signed a waiver of his right to a speedy trial.

Thirty-three-year-old Tyrone Hartsfield's trial had been scheduled to start April 13. A new start date hasn't yet been set.

Hartsfield is charged with shooting Collier 14 times. The former player is paralyzed from the waist down and his left leg was amputated.
