The Nebraska trial of a Kansas man charged with the collision deaths of four Iowa motorcyclists has been delayed again.

The new trial starting date for Jeser Cisneros-Hernandez, 24, of Liberal, Kansas, is Dec. 3. Keith County District Court records say he pleaded not guilty in October 2017 to four felony counts of vehicular homicide, one misdemeanor count of reckless driving and one of failing to drive in his lane.

Cisneros-Hernandez's trial previously had been set to start in July 2018, then successively in April, August and October of this year.

Prosecutors say Cisneros-Hernandez's vehicle hit two motorcycles carrying two people each on July 1, 2017, near Ogallala.

Authorities say Sheila Matheny, 54, and James Matheny, 61, from Bedford, Iowa. The other motorcyclists were Michal Weese, 58, and Jerolyn Weese, 59, who lived in Council Bluffs, Iowa.
