Judge Todd Ehlers granted a motion by the defense yesterday to postpone the murder trial of Brian Cooper.
Originally scheduled for April 8, the trial is now set to begin June 17.
Cooper’s attorney, Shane Brabazon, told Ehlers that the defense has been unable to retain an expert to conduct psychological testing because of the short time frame and complexity of the case.
Cooper faces two charges of first-degree intentional homicide in the killing of Alisha Bromfield and her unborn child in August at a Door County resort. Bromfield’s parents spoke in opposition of the motion to adjourn the trial at the motion hearing.
Jury selection will take place June 14 in Wood County.
