Defense motions delay pesticide company trial

A trial for Bio Tech Management, a pesticide company out of Alabama accused of misusing pesticides at several nursing homes, was scheduled to start Monday, but was pushed back a day because of defense motions. That's according to U.S. Attorney Michael Moore's office.

The company faces dozens of charges, including false statements, falsifying records, mail fraud, and unlawful use of pesticide.

The indictment says that, from October 2005 to June 2009, Murray and Bio-Tech "repeatedly misapplied the registered pesticide Termidor SC in nursing homes in the state of Georgia and falsified documents to conceal the unlawful use."

The pesticides were allegedly misused at dozens of nursing homes in central Georgia.

Jury selection will still take place Monday.
