ST. GEORGE, Utah (AP) — A judge has agreed to another delay in the trial of a 52-year-old St. George woman accused of automobile homicide in a crash prosecutors blame on texting while driving.

Carla Brennan's trial is scheduled July 13 for the death of David Henson and serious injury of his wife, Leslee.

Police say the two were on the sidewalk near a bridge over the Santa Clara River in May 2013 when Brennan rear-ended another car at a high rate of speed, sending the car into the couple.

The trial originally was set for October, then pushed back until January.

The (St. George) Spectrum reports a judge granted another delay Wednesday. Brennan's lawyer says he's still waiting on cell tower data he claims will prove Brennan wasn't on the phone during the crash.
