PUEBLO — Donthe Lucas, the man who is accused of killing his pregnant girlfriend, was back in court on Thursday for a status conference.
Lucas was set to go on trial Dec. 1, but the trial will now be moved to another date. The prosecution requested this because one of their witnesses needs surgery.
He is due back in court Monday to determine a future trial date.
Lucas is accused of killing his pregnant girlfriend, 21-year-old Kelsie Schelling, who is presumed dead, but has not been located since she was last seen in Pueblo in February 2013 during a trip from Denver to see Lucas.
He has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder charges.
