Competency hearing for Ariz. serial killer delayed

PHOENIX -- A judge has agreed to postpone a scheduled hearing to determine convicted serial killer Dale Hausner's competency to waive further appeals so he can be executed as soon as possible.

Judge Roland Steinle granted a motion filed on behalf of Hausner, who was convicted of six murders and numerous other crimes in a series of random shootings in the Phoenix area in 2005 and 2006.

The two-hearing was scheduled in Maricopa County Superior Court for April 24-25 but now is scheduled for July 10-11.

Steinle approved the postponement just days after he denied several others that would have scuttled the hearing.
