WASHINGTON (KWWL) -- The murder trial of an eastern Iowa man accused of killing his wife has been delayed. 

Seventy-year-old James Blum, from Washington, is charged with second-degree murder in the death of his wife, 67-year-old Patricia Blum in January.

Online court records show his trial is now set for October 5th.

It was originally set for August 24th.

Investigators say Blum allegedly smothered his wife on a couch in their home after she backed their car into a garage door.
