The trial of a Topeka man charged with killing his mother is postponed until next May.

The trial of 38-year-old Jason Hachmeister was scheduled to start Dec. 3. It was postponed on Wednesday to May 13 at the request of defense attorney Mark Bennett.

Hachmeister is charged with premeditated first-degree murder in the September 2011 strangulation death of 58-year-old Sheila Hachmeister.

Jason Hachmeister called 911 to say he had found his mother's body on the floor of her home in Topeka. He was arrested in December after his DNA was allegedly found on a ligature around his mother's neck.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that Jason Hachmeister was a beneficiary of a $125,000 life insurance policy on his mother.
