    A federal judge has decided not to delay a trial for a Massachusetts man charged with killing a Brattleboro woman in 2011.

    At the end of a half-hour hearing in U.S. District Court in Rutland today, Judge Christina Reiss said she wouldn't push back the Sept. 9 trial date for Frank Caraballo. However, the judge did say she reserved the right to changer her mind if at any time - even after the start of the trial - convincing arguments were made that the 31-year-old Holyoke, Mass., man's right to a fair trial was being infringed on due to a lack of time for his lawyers to prepare a defense.

    Caraballo faces multiple lifetime jail sentences if he is convicted of killing 30-year-old Melissa Barratt, whose body was found in a wooded area in Dummerston on July 29, 2011.
