A murder trial that was supposed to start last week has been pushed to February.

Michael Edwin Dobson has been held in the Mohave County Jail on first-degree murder charges since his arrest in September 2011. Dobson was arrested the day after 76-year-old Ruby Nell Caldwell was found stabbed to death at her home on Bluebird Lane. Dobson was found the next morning while driving Caldwell's car on Route 66 near the Kingman Airport. He put up a brief struggle before being taken into custody, the Sheriff's Office said.

Caldwell was a friend of Dobson's mother. She and Dobson met while the two worked at a local fast food restaurant.

Dobson's attorney, Jennifer Birmingham, recently asked the court for a six-week continuance in the case, citing the need for additional interviews and lab testing.

The new trial date is scheduled for Feb. 5, with a final case hearing to be held Jan. 22.

Dobson previously served 13 years of a 25-year sentence for the rape and attempted manslaughter of a California woman in 1984.

The woman in that case said she was driving down the highway when Dobson drove up next to her and indicated that something was wrong with her car. After both drivers stopped, Dobson dragged the woman into the bushes and assaulted her before trying to strangle her with a belt that broke.

He went back to prison in 2002 for burglary and drug offenses and was released in 2009.

re: seecar. It would appear that when the story was copy and pasted onto our website, the "jump," the word you see in the paper edition to refer you to the continued page, was included. That's my best explanation, anyway.

I have no idea what a "Seecar" is? Regardless, why are these especially vicious criminals allowed back on the NEVER ends well?
