LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- A court hearing has been delayed for the man released on shock probation after serving eight months of a 14-year sentence for killing his girlfriend while driving under the influence.

Cody File will have to wait until next month to find out if his probation will be revoked and if he will have to serve out the rest of his sentence after he was arrested on drunk driving charges again.

In 2011, File was convicted of killing 18-year-old Caroline Minks. Minks, File's girlfriend at the time, was killed when he crashed on River Road back in 2009. File pleaded guilty to a manslaughter charge, but served just a portion of his sentence.

In April, File was arrested and charged with driving under the influence, failure to a report a traffic accident, operating on a suspended operator's license, failure to surrender a revoked operator's license and failure to wear a seatbelt.

Minks' family was in the court room wearing the red shirts they had made after she was killed. Friday marks five years since the fatal accident.

He was back in front of a judge Monday and WHAS11's Brittany Gonzalez was there. She has more on this story in the video player above.
