LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) -- The trial for a 19-year-old Kansas woman accused of killing a 52-year-old Lawrence businessman has been pushed back to early next year.

6NEWSLawrence reports Sarah Gonzales McLinn appeared Thursday in Douglas County Court, where the trial previously scheduled for Aug. 4 was moved to Jan. 5.

McLinn is charged with first-degree murder in the January death of Harold Sasko at the home they shared. McLinn told police she drugged Sasko by putting sleeping pills in his beer and cut his throat with a large hunting knife.

Police say she stole Sasko's car after killing him and drove to Texas so she could see the ocean. She was arrested Jan. 25 after a security officer at Everglades National Park in Florida found her asleep in Sasko's car.
