Trial has been delayed for a man and woman accused in the killing death of a Wildomar man.

Trial for Wildomar residents Summer Sharmaine Stephens, 39, and Anthony Garcia, 33, has been reset to March 13, court records show. Trial for the pair was set to begin last week, but a new defense attorney is coming in for Stephens and Garcia's attorney was unavailable, according to Riverside County District Attorney spokesman John Hall.

Garcia is charged with murdering a Wildomar man whose body was discovered in an abandoned Wildomar residence in September 2012. Stephens is charged with aiding and abetting the crime. A third suspect -- a 13-year-old, gender and name undisclosed -- was also arrested in the case.

No bail has been set for Stephens or Garcia.

An assault call in Wildomar led to the discovery of the dead man about 6:30 p.m. Sept. 18, 2012 in the area of Mariposa Road and Mission Trail.

The victim's age and identity have not been released by authorities.

Meth is very, very bad. Please talk to your kids and make sure it is a drug they never ever try. Any news on the 13 year old mentioned in the article?
