(Newser) – There's been much ado about Bradley Manning's state of mind and imprisonment over the course of pre-trial hearings this past week, but the Army private and accused WikiLeaker now won't get his day in court until March, reports the AP. A military judge announced the change today, saying that longer-than-expected pretrial proceedings meant Manning's trial would be delayed by six weeks to March 16 or 18. He faces life in prison.
