(SEYMOUR) - The trial of a man linked to a slaying in downtown Seymour on April 30 has been postponed.

32-year-old Daniel L. Combs, of North Vernon, had requested a speedy trial during his initial hearing May 11 on eight criminal charges, including murder, in connection with the shooting death of 42-year-old Gilbert Engle of Seymour.

The trial was set to begin at 8:30 a.m. Tuesday in Jackson Circuit Court.

Seymour Police Chief Bill Abbott says investigators believe Combs shot and killed Engle during an incident at Engle's second-floor apartment in the 200 block of North Chestnut Street after a night of using heroin and other drugs.

Engle's body was found by his roommate.

21-year-old Jessica Jarrell of North Vernon was with Combs when the shooting occurred and helped steal drugs and cash from the apartment before the two left the area in a stolen PT Cruiser.
