The trial for a man accused of going on a shooting spree in Brockton in 2009, killing three people, will not start next week as planned.

The trial of Keith Luke will not start on Monday as planned, according to the Plymouth County District Attorney’s office, which will prosecute the case.

The case will likely not go before a judge and jury in Brockton Superior Court  before the start of 2013, though it’s unclear why.

Luke, an alleged white supremacist’, is represented by Brockton defense attorney Joe Krowski Jr. It’s likely that Krowski will try for an insanity defense

Luke is accused of killing three people and leading police on a chase through the city of Brockton in January 2009. He gained national attention after he appeared in superior court for his arraignment with a swastika carved in his forhead.
