WASHINGTON (AP) - Chris Brown's trial on an assault charge in Washington has been delayed for months.

Lawyers returned to court Wednesday for what had been set as the start of Brown's trial. But prosecutors have told a judge they won't grant Brown bodyguard Christopher Hollosy immunity to testify at his boss's trial.

Hollosy was convicted Monday as part of the same October incident in which both men are accused of punching someone outside a hotel. Hollosy had said he wouldn't testify unless granted immunity or until his appeal is concluded, which will take months.

Brown is in custody as a result of a case in California. He will be returned there by U.S. Marshals. A hearing in that case is set for Wednesday.

A judge scheduled a June status hearing in Brown's Washington case.
