FAIRFIELD — The suspect in the 2012 shooting death of a Fairfield man in the driveway of his Oceanic Court home had his upcoming murder trial postponed for six months.

Zavier A. Pigues, 23, was in court briefly Thursday when a judge granted his attorney’s request for the delay and rescheduled the trial to get underway Dec. 1.

Police testimony at Pigues’ probable cause hearing described Pigues getting into a heated argument with Brian Beaufort, 30, at approximately 3 a.m. Oct. 28, 2012, in front of Beaufort’s home.

Pigues left the area briefly and then returned to retrieve a pair of glasses he had left behind during the scuffle, according to testimony. A short time later, friends inside the home heard gunshots and discovered Beaufort mortally wounded in the driveway of the home.

Beaufort, an eight-year Marine Corps veteran who was the boyfriend of Pigues’ sister, died a short time later at a nearby hospital.

    Continuance for SIX months?! This crime was committed in 2012, why does Solano County allow these trials to drag on for literally years and years?

    @What-This is par for the course for the office whose name I can't type out or the DR won't post my comment. The court system here is a friggen joke. I'm sure come Nov, he'll ask for and probably get another continuance.
