SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- The trial for the woman accused of fatally hitting a bicyclist last year has been postponed.
Sixty-six-year-old Elizabeth Deseelhorst's trial was originally supposed to begin November 16th. But her lawyer Greg Skordas says he had a conflicting felony trial in Salt Lake City that took precedence.
Her trial date is now scheduled for December 20th.
DeSeelhorst is accused of killing 25-year-old bicyclist Josie Johnson in a collision last year. She's charged with one count of negligent homicide.
DeSeelhorst allegedly struck and killed Johnson with her S-U-V in September in Big Cottonwood Canyon. She's the wife of the Solitude Ski Resort owner.
