|Intro:||A hearing to put a restraining order on a top Missouri Republican accused of beating an aide was delayed today. Scott Kanowsky has more from Jefferson City.|
Wrap: The lawyers for state representative Brian Nieves and a rival politician's campaign aide say they agreed to the delay to "get more facts."
But the aide's attorney, Michael Byrne, says the case should continue in a few days.
|Description: "You know, we'd like to have the hearing as soon as possible. The whole purpose of getting a protective order is to ensure that Mr. Bell feels adequately protected by the state of Missouri."|
