The preliminary hearing for a man accused of killing his wife with cyanide has been postponed.
The defense attorney for Robert Ferrante requested the delay, and the hearing before Allegheny County Common Pleas Judge David R. Cashman is now scheduled for Oct. 22.
Mr. Ferrante, a researcher at the University of Pittsburgh, is charged with one count of criminal homicide in the April 20 death of Autumn Klein, 41. She collapsed at their Oakland home the night of April 17 and died three days later at UPMC Presbyterian of cyanide poisoning.
The original hearing was set for Sept. 23.
