QUINCY, Ill. (AP) - A former Adams County prosecutor charged with murder in his first wife’s death wants to keep his second wife from testifying at his upcoming trial.

The (Quincy) Herald-Whig (bit.ly/1IrnV5d ) reports that Curtis Lovelace’s lawyers asked the trial judge Tuesday to bar testimony by Erica Gomez-Steinkamp.

Prosecutors have identified her as a potential witness in a trial scheduled to start Jan. 25.

Lovelace, who has pleaded not guilty, is accused of suffocating 38-year-old Cory Lovelace at their home in 2006. He was charged with the crime in 2014.

Curtis Lovelace is a former Quincy school board member and Big Ten football standout at Illinois.
