TACOMA, Wash. (AP) — The child pornography and voyeurism trial for the father-in-law of missing Utah mother Susan Powell has been delayed until next March.

Steve Powell was arrested last month after investigators who searched his Puyallup home said they found more than 1,000 images of women who had been videotaped without their consent, including Susan. He also was charged with child pornography for images he allegedly took of young neighbor girls in the bathtub and on the toilet.

Powell has pleaded not guilty and is being held on $200,000 bail.

He did not appear at a pretrial hearing Thursday where his trial was delayed from next month to March 20.

Susan Powell disappeared from her home in West Valley City in late 2009. Her husband, Josh Powell, is the only publicly identified person-of-interest in the case.
