INDICE DE GALERIAS
OTTUMWA, Iowa (AP) — The second trial for a southeast Iowa man charged with killing his pregnant wife has been delayed.
The Ottumwa Courier reports (http://bit.ly/14hoNSV ) the re-trial for Seth Techel was to begin Monday but has been delayed indefinitely due to a medical problem.
Techel's lawyer, Steven Gardner, says in court documents that Techel has "ongoing complications from a prior medically diagnosed condition."
Techel is charged with murder and nonconsensual termination of a human pregnancy in connection with the death of his wife, Lisa Techel, and their unborn child. She was shot in May 2012 at their home near Agency.
In March an Ottumwa jury failed to reach a unanimous verdict, so the judge declared a mistrial.
The new trial will be held in Mount Pleasant because of extensive coverage of the case.
