(JEFFERSONVILLE) - An attorney for a southern Indiana man who police say confessed to fatally stabbing his estranged wife says a court-appointed psychiatrist who determined he was sane may have had a conflict of interest.

The Associated Press reports, Edward Dale Bagshaw's murder trial has been postponed until at least Friday following his lawyer's objection. Bagshaw is using an insanity defense.

The Courier-Journal reports Dr. Steven Shelton testified Wednesday that he had treated Bagshaw in jail about a week before performed the mental evaluation.

Bagshaw is charged with murder in the November 2011 slaying of 30-year-old Kelly Bagshaw in a parking lot outside his Jeffersonville apartment.

None of the doctors who evaluated Bagshaw at the court's order found him insane. Shelton said he believes Bagshaw was depressed but not insane.
