MASON CITY, Iowa (AP) - A former Mason City man's murder trial has been rescheduled for June.

The trial of 37-year-old Michael Cisneros is set to begin on June 23 in Cerro Gordo County District Court. It had been scheduled to begin Feb. 17

Cisneros is charged with first-degree murder in the death of John Joseph Snyder Jr., who went missing July 20, 1994. His body was found the next day in a creek.

Authorities say Cisneros was arrested after a DNA sample taken from him in 2012 matched DNA found on the toddler's pajamas.

Cisneros has pleaded not guilty.
