Kings defenseman Slava Voynov's domestic-violence trial delayed until April

Kings defenseman Slava Voynov's trial on a felony domestic violence change has been delayed until April

The trial of Kings defenseman Slava Voynov on a felony domestic-violence charge has been delayed again.

Motions in the case will be heard April 1, with jury selection slated for April 21, according to Craig Renetzky, one of Voynov’s attorneys.

The trial was scheduled to start earlier this week but was postponed one week because of a scheduling conflict by Deputy Dist. Atty. Frank Dunnick.

No reason was given for Friday’s continuance.

Voynov was suspended indefinitely with pay shortly after the alleged incident involving his wife, Marta Varlamova, last October.
