PITTSBURGH — A judge says he won't delay the trial of a Pittsburgh man accused of having robbed and killed two sisters of an Iowa state lawmaker last year.
The Allegheny County judge on Friday denied a request to postpone the trial of 44-year-old Allen Wade by defense attorneys who said they needed more time to review new evidence.
Judge Edward Borkowski called for Allen's public defenders to make "renewed efforts" to prepare Wade's defense on time.
Prosecutors say Wade lived next door to the sisters and allege that he killed Sarah Wolfe after she returned home to find Susan Wolfe already slain on the night of Feb. 6.
The women were the sisters of Democratic Iowa state Rep. Mary Wolfe.
The trial is scheduled to start on Nov. 2.
