QUINCY, Ill. (AP) - The trial for a former Adams County prosecutor charged with killing his first wife has been delayed again.

A circuit judge on Monday delayed 46-year-old Curtis T. Lovelace’s trial from March 23 to June 29. Lovelace’s attorneys said they needed more time to prepare. The trial originally was scheduled for Jan. 26.

Lovelace was indicted in August on charges of first-degree murder for the 2006 death of 38-year-old Cory Lovelace in Quincy. The indictment alleges Curtis Lovelace suffocated Cory Lovelace.

Curtis Lovelace is a former Quincy school board member and Big Ten football standout at Illinois. He has pleaded not guilty and is being held in lieu of $5 million bond.

Lovelace is next due in court April 30 for a status hearing.
