The trial of an Army private accused of shooting at his comrades during morning exercise at Fort Campbell has been postponed.

The trial was scheduled to begin today (Monday) after a judge ruled this month that Private Nicholas Mikel showed no signs of mental illness in a psychological evaluation.

The court martial was postponed until April 19th.

He faces three counts of attempted murder for shooting into a physical training formation at the Army post last October with a nonmilitary issue handgun. No one was hurt.

Military attorneys have said they are working through details of a plea agreement.

Mikel faces 23 assault-related charges, and one count each of attempted rape, larceny and failing to register a deadly weapon.
