ST. GEORGE, Utah (AP) -- Warren Jeffs' criminal trial won't start April 23 as planned.

A judge today didn't elaborate on the postponement.

Jeffs' legal team recently filed documents trying to get evidence thrown out. And on April 23, Judge James Shumate will hear those arguments instead.

Jeffs is the leader of a fundamentalist sect that practices polygamy. He is charged with crimes tied to the spiritual marriage of a teen girl and an older man.
