A judge has again delayed the trial of a Kansas anti-abortion activist accused of sending a threatening letter to a Wichita doctor training to perform abortions.

The trial of Angel Dillard of Haysville was reset for Oct. 29, 2013. That would be nearly three years after she is accused of sending Dr. Mila Means a letter saying people were watching and mentioning that someone could place explosives under her car.

The Justice Department sued Dillard under a federal law aimed at protecting access to reproductive services.

The case has languished since its filing in April 2011. The court docket shows 23 motions have sought extensions of various deadlines for filings and proceedings. Nearly all those requests were filed by the defense.

One other trial delay also was granted.
