A Keokuk man charged with vehicular homicide will have to wait a little longer for his trial.
A Lee County, Iowa judge moved Devin Lewis' trial to November 13 due to a conflict in the prosecutor's schedule.
The trial was scheduled to start Tuesday.
Lewis is charged in the October 2012 death of 35-year-old Howard Vincent.
Vincent died in a head-on collision on U.S. Highway 218.
Police say Lewis fled from the scene on foot. He was eventually found at his home on Carbide Lane.
Police believe alcohol was a factor in the crash.
