KINGMAN - The trial of a Kingman man who was charged with aggravated assault after he allegedly attempted to sexually assault a 22-year-old woman in December was postponed for two weeks so he could undergo surgery.

Craig Allan Gollihar, 52, allegedly attempted to tie up the woman before she broke free during a struggle in a motel room in the 3300 block of Andy Devine Avenue.

On Monday, Judge Steven Conn postponed Gollihar's trial date from Aug. 12 to Aug. 26.

Prosecutor Greg McPhillips and defense attorney Art Higgs advised Conn they are otherwise ready to go to trial.

Also on Monday, Conn postponed the murder trial of a Bullhead City man who allegedly stabbed a man about 80 times in order to pay off a drug debt.

Bullhead City Police believe Chase Robert Salveson, 43, murdered Raymond Arthur Sanchez, 36, on Aug. 21, 2011.

Sanchez was suspected of stealing a large amount of methamphetamine from Nora Yesenia Sandoval, 36, a convicted drug dealer who is currently a fugitive.

According to police, Salveson owed Sandoval a significant amount of money and killed Sanchez to pay it off. Sanchez's body was wrapped in shower curtains and duct taped.

Salveson's DNA was reportedly found on the tape.

Sanchez was married and the father of five.
