The trial for Bruce William Macomb has been pushed back to April 16, following a hearing Tuesday before Fourth District Judge Ronald Wilper.
Macomb, 62, is accused of choking his wife, Beba Macomb, 58, to death at about 5 a.m. on Feb. 16. Police officers found her body that afternoon after performing a welfare check at the couple's southeast Boise home.
Police said Bruce Macomb slashed his neck and wrists before officers arrived, in an unsuccessful attempt to kill himself.
Macomb is charged with first-degree murder and failure to report a death. He was originally scheduled to go to trial in October, but that date was later withdrawn, leading to Tuesday's hearing to reset the trial.
He is being held without bond at the Ada County Jail.
