Trial of Court Shooter's Relatives Postponed

Posted: Updated:

DOVER, Del. (AP) - A federal judge has postponed a trial for relatives of a man who killed two people at a Delaware courthouse.

The judge on Monday postponed a scheduled October trial for David Matusiewicz, his mother, Lenore, and sister, Amy Gonzalez, until March 2015. He also denied Gonzalez's request to have her trial held separately.

The judge also refused to move Gonzalez's trial to another state, as he did last week for her co-defendants.

The judge said the defendants have not established that extensive media coverage has made it impossible for them to get a fair trial in Delaware.

The defendants are charged with conspiracy and stalking of David Matusiewicz's ex-wife, Christine Belford. Belford and a friend were fatally shot by Matusiewicz's father in February 2013 at the New Castle County courthouse.
