A Crawford County judge has approved postponing the trial for the Corry man charged with killing a pregnant Amish woman. 

Shawn Cranston, 53, is charged with killing 23-year-old Rebekah Byler. Her body was discovered by her husband inside their Sparta Township home Feb. 26.

Cranston was set to go on trial in June, but his attorney is requesting additional time to review the "large amounts" of evidence in the case, according to court documents released Wednesday. The district attorney has also agreed to the continuance.

It will now be moved to the September trial term.

Erie News Now has also learned a pretrial conference is scheduled for June 24.

Police said Byler suffered multiple wounds to her neck and a gunshot wound to her head, and her 2-year-old daughter and 3-year-old son were home at the time of the crime.      

According to the search warrant, their son told police he saw a green truck pull into their driveway, and a man entered their home and killed his mother.

State police have focused their investigation on a red Jeep owned by Cranston.      

A trooper who conducted data analysis on Crantson's cell phone and Jeep testified Cranston's vehicle was in the Byler's driveway on the morning of Rebekah's death.      

The warrant and witnesses indicated Cranston spent time in the Amish community in the weeks leading up to Rebekah's death.
