Cal Harris's third murder trial may get delayed until October.

As of now it's still scheduled to start on September 15.

However, Harris's defense team is seeking more time to prepare.

A representative from the Schoharie County Court, where the trial will be held this time, told us as of now the trial date has not been moved. But, by next week, a new date could be set, possibly for mid-October.

Harris, a Southern Tier businessman, has been convicted twice of murdering his wife Michele, although the first conviction was thrown out after a post-trial witness came forward.

Harris successfully appealed the 2nd jury verdict.

Michele's body has never been found.

She was last seen September 11, 2001 leaving her waitressing job in Waverly.
