A murder trial scheduled to take place this week in Roane County Criminal Court has been postponed.
Milford Barnett is accused of killing his mother, Pearl Barnett, in April 2007.
District Attorney General Russell Johnson said the public defender got permission to be out of court this week because his wife was sick.
The trial may get reset for later this month.
“It’s possibly going to be moved to Aug. 23,” Johnson said.
