MARYSVILLE, Ohio (AP) - A trial is postponed for an Ohio National Guardsman accused of sexually abusing three adopted daughters and his stepdaughter and trying to keep other children in the family from discussing what they knew.

The 41-year-old Marysville man has pleaded not guilty on 35 counts. A judge on Tuesday granted the defense request to push back the trial date and reset it for May 11 in Union County. It had been scheduled for Monday.

The defense attorney said more time was needed to review medical records, contact between the victims and the prosecutor’s office, and allegations of inappropriate sexual contact involving parties associated with the case. The attorney’s office has said he won’t discuss the case.

A local prosecutor said last fall that the children no longer lived with the defendant.
