Yet another delay has put off what was expected to be a week-long trial for murder defendant Edward Lewis Owens.

Owen, 57, was scheduled to go to trial Wednesday in the 1980 slaying of Karin Strom. Owens was charged with first-degree felony murder in March after prosecutors revived the case with DNA technology that wasn't available 27 years ago.

Authorities believe Strom, 25, was trying to fight off her attacker when she was strangled in her Woods Cross home in June of 1980.

Owens had worked at the same machine shop of Strom's husband, Steve. Although charged in his wife's death, the case was later dismissed.

Owens had been set to go to trial in Farmington's 2nd District Court in October, this month and new delays have now resulted in a January trial date.

He remains in the custody of the Davis County Jail.
