FARGO — A pair of evidentiary hearings in Alfonso Rodriguez Jr.'s appeal of his death sentence have been delayed again. An evidentiary hearing on forensic issues in the murder case was to start Tuesday, March 28, but it's now set to begin June 20. Seven days have been allotted for testimony, but only four days may be needed, court records stated. Another evidentiary hearing, focused on Rodriguez's mental health, was set for June 20 and could last four days or more. But that hearing will be moved to a later date, court records stated.
