DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Trial has been delayed for a former Iowa lawmaker accused of sexually abusing his wife at a care center.

Court records show the jury trial of former state Rep. Henry Rayhons is set to start on April 8. A pre-trial conference is scheduled at the end of March.

Rayhons’ trial on a third-degree sexual abuse charge was scheduled to start Jan. 28. He has pleaded not guilty.

Rayhons, of Garner, is accused of having sexual contact with his wife, Donna Rayhons, while she was living at a care center and not able to give consent. Donna Rayhons died in August.

Messages left for Rayhons’ attorney, Joel Yunek, were not immediately returned Wednesday.
