WHEATON, Ill. (AP) Flooding has delayed the start of the first trial in the Chicago area to allow cameras in court during testimony and through to a verdict.

The Daily Herald reports that flooding Thursday closed the DuPage County courthouse. That's where the trial was to begin Thursday for Johnny Borizov. He's accused of instigating the murder of three members of a suburban family. Cameras will be permitted when attorneys make their opening statements.

Officials said Borizov's trial will likely begin Tuesday. He is accused of talking a friend into killing Jeffrey and Lori Kramer and their 20-year-old son, Michael, in their Darien home in 2010. The Kramers' daughter was Borizov's ex-girlfriend.
