DIXON – The trial of an Amboy man accused of murder is now set to start Feb. 24.

Matthew W. Welling, 33, is charged with five counts of first-degree murder and two counts of home invasion in the July 2012 beating death of Delmar Leroy Daniels in Amboy.

The trial was originally set to begin Nov. 12, but the receipt of DNA results and scheduling conflicts caused it to be pushed back first until January, and then until February.

Welling is in Lee County Jail on $2 million bond.
