Couple accused of rape head to trial


State prosecutors delay the trial of a man accused of raping a 15 year old with his ex girlfriend.
Prosecutors say Alexander  Martinez, 20, and his co-defendant, Kristina Hague, 19, committed the alleged  rape on a child under 16 last January.

Martinez was originally scheduled for trial in April, but prosecutors requested a new trial date of June 28th due to scheduling conflicts.  Hague is scheduled for trial in May.

Hague and  Martinez pleaded 'not' guilty to 4th degree  rape charges in December, but will be tried separately.
Martinez's attorneys say Hague may make a plea agreement before then, and testify against Martinez.
Both face 15 years in prison and a $30 thousand dollar fine if convicted.
