WACO, TX (KXXV) -

Jury selection for the first Twin Peaks trial that was scheduled for Friday has been postponed for next week.

During a jury selection hearing on Thursday, 19th District Court Judge Ralph Strother announced it will happen on Sept. 1 at 9:30 a.m. 

Christopher "Jake" Carrizal who was indicted on engaging in organized criminal activity has been scheduled for a trial in September.

The hearing got heated at times when Carrizal's attorney Casie Gotro claimed she had not received all the evidence she has requested from the state. Prosecutors said that was not the case and asked for the possibility that some of the evidence she was requesting didn't exist.

They went on to say that Waco Police have produced items that they had never turned before at her request. 

At one point, Judge Strother who seemed frustrated asked Gotro: "For crying out loud, tell me what is it that you want you didn't have."

During the hearing, Gotro stated her intentions to file a motion to recuse the judge from the trial and to dismiss the proceedings so she can get what she needs. In addition, she filed a motion to stay the proceedings, which he denied earlier this week.

After the hearing, the judge, the defense and defendant and prosecutors went to the judge's chambers for more than 30 minutes. Gotro asked for that meeting to be kept on the record. 

When the parties came out of the meeting, Strother stated the jury selection had been postponed but that the trial will take place on Sept. 12 at 8:30 a.m.
