OXFORD -- A federal judge has rescheduled the trial date of a Columbus man indicted on child pornography charges. 


WTVA-TV in Tupelo reports Tyler Lofton's trial is now set for June 9 in U.S. District Court in Oxford. 


The 30-year-old Lofton was arrested in April for exploitation of a minor. 


Authorities say an investigation turned up images of children on his computer. The images dated back to December of 2012. 


Lofton has pleaded not guilty and is currently free on a $5,000 bond. 


Court records show the latest is because prosecutors say one of the investigators in the case has a medical issue that will keep them out of work for a couple of months. 


Lofton's trial had been scheduled for March 31.
