RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - A physician who police say killed his girlfriend will be released from jail because of a trial delay.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports that Dr. John E. Gibbs is set to be out of jail around Sept. 1 because his murder trial in Chesterfield County has been moved from next week to November. The trial had to be rescheduled because a prosecution witness was unavailable.

Gibbs is currently in jail for felony child neglect.

He is charged with killing Zulma Pabon, a nurse who went missing in 2014 and whose body has not been found.
