SLIDELL, La. -- A federal judge has delayed a preliminary hearing for a Slidell man accused of accepting illegal kickbacks while working as a government subcontractor in Afghanistan.

Mark McCabe was scheduled to appear in court on March 4, but prosecutors are now asking for a delay while a possible agreement is discussed.

McCabe was arrested back in December, just days after being released from a prison in South Sudan.

The preliminary hearing in the case has been rescheduled for early April.
