OKEMAH, Okla. (AP) -- Formal arraignment for an Oklahoma man accused in the 2011 death of his girlfriend has been reset.
Kevin Sweat was scheduled to appear Tuesday in Okfuskee County District Court, but the hearing was moved to Aug. 22 at 10 a.m.
Prosecutors have charged Sweat with first-degree murder in the July 2011 slaying of 23-year-old Ashley Taylor. Investigators say fragmented human bones found smoldering on the property of Sweat's father are consistent with Taylor, but are not an exact match.
He was bound over for trial in May.
Sweat also is accused in the 2008 fatal shootings of 13-year-old Taylor Placker and 11-year-old Skyla Whitaker near Weleetka.
Sweat's attorney, Wayne Woodyard with the Oklahoma Indigent Defense System, was in court Tuesday and didn't immediately return a request seeking comment.

There's no question the level of devastation Moore residents have seen. Not once, not twice, but three times tornadoes have disrupted life for the Oklahoma City suburb. Still, residents' spirits are anything but destroyed. They've been through this before.
