PITTSBURGH (AP) - A judge has postponed the trial of a Pittsburgh man charged with robbing and killing two sisters of an Iowa state lawmaker last year.

Allegheny County Judge Edward Borkowski criticized prosecutors and defense attorneys for not being prepared to try the case of 44-year-old Allen Wade starting Monday. Instead, jury selection will begin in late February.

The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review (https://bit.ly/1WlVxr5 ) reports Wade’s public defenders wanted more time to review laboratory data in hopes of challenging DNA evidence, while prosecutors want more time to consult with experts on blood spatter and autopsy evidence.

Wade lived next door and allegedly killed Sarah Wolfe after she returned home to find Susan Wolfe already slain on the night of Feb. 6, 2014.

The women were the sisters of Democratic Iowa state Rep. Mary Wolfe.
