Abortion shooting trial delay in works

September 18, 2009


— The trial of the man accused of killing abortion provider George Tiller is expected to be continued to a later date.

Fifty-one-year-old Scott Roeder is scheduled to go to trial Monday on charges of first-degree murder and aggravated assault in the May 31 shooting at Tiller’s church.

Georgia Cole, spokeswoman for the Sedgwick County District Attorney’s office, said on Thursday that attorneys in the case are working to set a new trial date.

Defense attorney Mark Rudy said two weeks ago he would be asking for a continuance.
