BEL AIR, Md. (AP)- A plea hearing is postponed for a college student who told authorities he killed a man and ate his heart and parts of his brain.
 
Alexander Kinyua was scheduled to appear Monday in Harford County Circuit Court, but judge Stephen Waldron says the hearing was canceled because Kinyua wasn't transported to the courthouse. The state's attorney cited administrative reasons. Waldron says the hearing might be rescheduled for August.
 
No other details about why Kinyua wasn't transported from the psychiatric hospital where he's committed indefinitely were available.
 
He's charged with killing a 37-year-old man from Ghana who was staying with Kinyua's family outside Baltimore in 2012.
 
Authorities say Kinyua ranted about "human sacrifices" on Facebook before the slaying.
 
In a separate case, Kinyua pleaded guilty but not criminally responsible to attacking a man.
