STAMFORD - The trial for a man accused of murdering Greenwich developer Andrew Kissel was postponed this morning due to new evidence.

Carlos Trujillo, 49, was set to go on trial today on charges of murder and conspiracy for the stabbing death of Andrew Kissel at his Greenwich home. The judge said today's postponement was due to a wiretap that had just surfaced.

Prosecutors say it was part of a murder-for-hire scheme also involving Trujillo's cousin, who pleaded guilty last year to reduced charges of manslaughter and conspiracy.

Kissel had been set to plead guilty in a multimillion-dollar fraud case a few days after he was killed.
