The trial for a man accsused of killing a Chattanooga woman and burning her body has been delayed indefinitely.

The defense for Charmane Goins says they need time to digest an FBI report.

They also want to get the FBI agent down as a witness.

A couple walking their dog in a park near Atlanta found Taylor's burned body.

Goins is an ex-con who was praised by authorities in Northwest Georgia and Tennessee for serving as a mentor to inmates once he got out of prison.

"The truth is going to come out eventually," Crystal Taylor told NewsChannel 9 in December, 2014. "I'm confident that justice is going to be served."
