Kanawha Circuit Judge Duke Bloom also appointed March a second attorney for another opinion on whether the plea is in his best interest.
Family spokesman Billy Herrald said that the family of Kathy Goble, the woman March is accused of killing and burying in his Chesapeake backyard, expected the judge to reject Wednesday's plea deal.

A judge rejected a tentative plea agreement for Charles Eugene March (left) on Wednesday because the results of several forensic examinations have not yet arrived. March's lawyer, Kanawha County assistant public defender Richard Holicker (right), said that he did not agree with March's decision to enter the plea.
