IOWA CITY, Iowa - The trial of a Cedar Rapids man facing an attempted murder charge in a drug-related shooting has been pushed back again.

Andrew Meyer, 20 (on the left), was supposed to go on trial in early December, but the trial date was changed to January 7th. Now it's set for March 25th in Johnson County.

Meyer is one of two men charged in a November 2012 shooting at 719 East Bloomington Street in Iowa City. Prosecutors say he and Peter Thullen went to the house to settle a drug debt, and at some point, Thullen shot a man.

Thullen, 21 of Cedar Rapids, reached a plea deal in October that dropped an attempted murder charge. Heis scheduled to be sentenced in January, facing up to 35 years in prison.
