CHICAGO (AP) - The money laundering trial of the widow of a suburban Chicago police officer who tried to make his suicide appear as if he was gunned down in the line of duty has been delayed until November.

Melodie Gliniewicz was indicted months after Fox Lake Police Lieutenant Charles Joseph Gliniewicz’s September death on charges that the two had siphoned money from a youth program. She’s pleaded not guilty.

The Lake County State’s Attorney’s office says the trial that was to begin Monday is now set for Nov. 14.

The police lieutenant’s death received national media attention - as the story shockingly changed from that of a manhunt and a grieving community to one of a beloved figure who killed himself because he feared discovery of his embezzlement of a youth program.
