SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) - The murder trial of a Sioux City man accused in the shooting death of another Iowan has been continued as lawyers await forensic test results.

Attorneys on Wednesday filed a motion to delay the first-degree murder trial of Timothy Schroeder, arguing they needed more time to conduct depositions. They also said they’re waiting on ballistics and fingerprint reports from the Iowa Department of Criminal Investigation laboratory.

Schroeder was arrested in February in connection with the slaying of 29-year-old Dustin Wilder, of Sloan. Schroeder’s wife told investigators that he fired two or three shots inside of Wilder’s home. Wilder was later found unconscious and was pronounced dead at the scene.

The Sioux City Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1PskB70 ) the trial, which had been set to begin Tuesday, is rescheduled for Sept. 1.
