A judge today set another new trial date for the man accused of killing and dismembering the body of his ex-girlfriend, a Luxor dancer.

Clark County District Judge Kathleen Delaney set May 5 to start the trial of Jason “Blu” Griffith, 35, a former dancer in “The Beatles Love,” the Cirque du Soleil show at the Mirage.

The trial has been postponed six times, most recently last month. Delaney is the second judge to preside over the case; the first, Judge Donald Mosley, has retired from the bench.

The dismembered body of Griffith’s ex-girlfriend, Debora Flores Narvaez, a dancer in the Luxor’s “Fantasy” show, was found encased in cement in two plastic tubs in January 2011 in a Las Vegas apartment, according to a Metro Police report. She had been reported missing a month earlier.

The Clark County Coroner's Office ruled Flores Narvaez's death was the result of asphyxiation due to neck compression.

A day after police discovered Flores Narvaez’s body, Griffith was arrested. A month later, in February 2009, a Clark County grand jury indicted Griffith on one county of murder.

Griffith remains at the Clark County Detention Center without bail.
