LEBANON, Mo. (AP) - The murder trial of a suburban Kansas City attorney accused of killing her millionaire father and his girlfriend has been rescheduled for August.

The Kansas City Star (https://bit.ly/1Lcow74 ) reports Susan Elizabeth Van Note of Lee’s Summit now will go to trial Aug. 17 for the slayings of 59-year-old Sharon Dickson and 67-year-old William Van Note. Dickson died at the couple’s Sunrise Beach home at the Lake of the Ozarks on Oct. 2, 2010, while Van Note died three days later at a Columbia hospital.

Prosecutors say Susan Van Note forged power of attorney documents and persuaded doctors to take her father off life support.

Laclede County Circuit Judge declared a mistrial last week before her trial was to begin because potential jurors had been discussing the case.
