REDWOOD CITY, California – The trial for the undocumented Filipino man in Ohio charged in a triple murder case will be postponed for the second time.

Igmidio Mista, 33, is accused of killing three men — including one off-duty police officer — in a shooting spree last March inside the Last Call bar in the town of Fremont.

A Sandusky judge ruled on Wednesday Mista’s trial could be rescheduled for October or November because the photo line-up used to identify suspects in the shooting may have been unduly suggestive.

If found guilty, Mista faces up to 75 years to life in prison.
