Posted:

MARENGO (AP) -- The first-degree murder trial of a man accused of killing a woman at his home near Marengo in eastern Iowa has been delayed.

Tonch Weldon is charged with shooting Amy Gephart last June. His trial in Iowa County District Court, which had been set for Jan. 25, has been postponed until July 27.

Weldon is accused of shooting Gephart with a 20-gauge shotgun before turning the gun on himself. Gephart was living with Weldon and his family at the time.

Gephart died at the scene. Weldon was hospitalized, then taken into custody.
