The continuance is the latest delay for Master Sgt. Timothy B. Hennis. Col. Patrick Parrish set Hennis's trial for Feb. 8, 2010.
Hennis, 51, is charged with three counts of premeditated murder in the 1985 deaths of Kathryn Eastburn, 31, and her two daughters, 3-year-old Erin and 5-year-old Kara, in their Fayetteville home. Investigators also believe that Eastburn was raped.
When DNA evidence surfaced that authorities said linked Hennis to the crimes, the Army recalled him to active duty, and to stand trial in military court.
