A murder trial for an Evansville man was scheduled to begin Monday morning in Vanderburgh Superior Court but it's been reset. The court could not confirm a reason as to why the trial is being pushed back.

Demarco Thomas is charged with murdering Patrick Bryant in April 2019. Bryant was taken to an area hospital after being found unresponsive in his apartment. About a month later he died from his injuries.

According to court records Thomas admitted to attacking Bryant after the victim spoke to Thomas using a racial slur.

Thomas is being held without bond in the Vanderburgh County Jail as he awaits trial.

Our Tuesday was nothing short of chilly, gloomy, gray and wintry throughout the Tri-State; afternoon high temperatures only reached as high as the middle to low 30s throughout the region. Our peak temperature of 32° in Evansville was 16° below the norm for this time of the year. As for the evening ahead, cloud cover and cool air will linger - additionally, there have been reports of sporadic flurries on and off throughout the day and some portions in the Lower Ohio Valley may continue to see brief snow showers through 10 o’clock this evening. Our winds will shift southward overnight tonight into early Wednesday morning and while it won’t necessarily drive temperatures higher for the predawn hours, It will help keep temperatures from falling much further than where they currently stand. Extract the morning low temperature near 29° in Evansville as we kick off our midweek.
