Judge postpones stepfather's murder trial


A McIntosh County man accused of killing his stepson was back in court Tuesday.

The judge postponed Brian Gale's trial. He's charged with murder and cruelty to children.

Prosecutors say Gale abandoned his 15- year-old stepson Daniel in the woods during a hunting trip. Gale said they were lost and that Daniel couldn't continue on so he left for help.

Daniel's body was found the next day -- he died of hypothermia.
