LACONIA — The trial for a man accused of kidnapping a 14-year-old girl and raping her over the course of nine months has been pushed back.

The New Hampshire Judicial Branch announced last week that 35-year-old Nathaniel Kibby's trial is now scheduled to start June 20 with jury selection. It had been scheduled for March.

Prosecutors say Kibby, of Gorham, kidnapped the girl on her way home from school in Conway on Oct. 9, 2013, then imprisoned her in his home and a storage unit until July 2014, when she returned home. He faces more than 200 charges in Carroll and Coos counties.

Kibby is accused of using death threats, a stun gun, zip ties and a shock collar to control the teen.

His trial will take place in Belknap County.
