A man convicted of killing a Monongalia County Sheriff's Deputy found out his trial in West Virginia will be pushed back. 

Jerod Green is serving a 25 to 50 year prison sentence in Pennsylvania. That's where a jury there found him guilty of killing Sergeant Michael Todd May in February 2012.

Chief Judge Russell Clawges allowed his trial here to be continued until December. Green's court appointed attorney said he needs more time to prepare for a trial.

Prosecutors weren't opposed to the continuation.

According to investigators, Green led law enforcement officials on a chase while across state lines while he was drunk. He crashed his truck into May's SUV and he died as a result of his injuries.
