During a pretrial conference Wednesday in Los Angeles Superior Court, Deputy District Attorney Frank Dunnick told the judge he is working another case that will overlap with the Voynov matter and that he would prefer not to work the cases concurrently.
Voynov's trial was originally scheduled to begin Monday, but after a conversation before Judge Eric Taylor and the lawyers involved, it's now expected to begin on March 9.
The final decision regarding a delay will be made Monday.
The defenseman faces one felony count of corporal injury to a spouse with great bodily injury. A conviction carries up to nine years in state prison.
