The trial for Enrique Marquez Jr., the man accused of supplying two rifles used to kill 14 people in the San Bernardino terror attack, has been pushed back until this summer.

Marquez had been scheduled to go on trial on Feb. 23, but U.S. District Judge Jesus Bernal this week approved the postponement at the request of both prosecutors and defense attorneys, according to court papers.

On Dec. 2, Marquez was working when Syed Rizwan Farook and his wife, Tashfeen Malik, stormed into the Inland Regional Center and carried out the deadliest terrorist attack on U.S. soil since Sept. 11, 2011.

But prosecutors have alleged that he and Farook plotted in 2011 and 2012 to carry out attacks at Riverside City College and on the 91 Freeway. Marquez is also accused of committing marriage fraud and making false statements in connection with his weapons purchases.
