WICHITA — Scott Roeder, the man charged with killing a Wichita abortion doctor, won't go to trial until at least next year, the Sedgwick County District Attorney's office said this morning.
Roeder was scheduled to go on trial Monday, charged with first-degree murder in the May shooting death of George Tiller.
Roeder's new trial date has been set for Jan. 25, 2010.
Tiller was shot to death inside Reformation Lutheran Church, where he was serving as an usher, on the last Sunday in May.
Late-term abortion procedures at Tiller's clinic had made him a longtime target of protests by abortion opponents.
