2nd murder trial for ex-Illinois prosecutor delayed 1 day

CHICAGO (AP) — The retrial of a former Illinois prosecutor charged with first-degree murder in the death of his first wife has been delayed by one more day. 

Former Adams County Assistant State’s Attorney Curtis Lovelace’s trial was originally scheduled to begin Monday in Sangamon County. The Quincy Herald-Whig reports (http://bit.ly/2mvAtPU ) that Judge Bob Harwick announced Sunday that pretrial discussions with attorneys will take place Monday and jury selection begins Tuesday. 

Lovelace was arrested in 2014 on charges that he suffocated 38-year-old Cory Lovelace in 2006.

Lovelace says he discovered her dead after he dropped their children off at school. His first trial ended with a deadlocked jury. 

The trial was moved from Adams County to Sangamon County on a change of venue request. 

A judge has allowed cameras in the courtroom.
