    Lawyer: Money an obstacle in Lovelace's defense

    The start of Curtis Lovelace's first-degree murder trial has been pushed back for a second time. The former assistant Adams County state's attorney and Quincy School Board president, accused of suffocating his wife in February 2006, is now scheduled to go to trial June 29. Jay Elmore, an attorney representing Lovelace, said the main reason for the slow-moving process is the lack of money to mount a defense.
