Bay Springs, Miss.
The trial of a Colorado woman in the shooting death of a Mississippi man has been rescheduled for the August term of Jasper County Circuit Court.

The Chronicle reports that Nancy Faye Yacobucci, also known as Nancy Faye Reaume, of Fort Collins, Colorado, was scheduled for trial last week.

Officials say the trial was delayed so attorneys for both sides could complete discovery, the swapping of evidence.

Yacobucci is charged with murder and grand larceny.

Authorities say the body of 68-year-old Joseph "J. L." Tatum was found Nov. 11, 2012, in his camper trailer in rural Jasper County. Tatum died of a gunshot wound to the chest.

Yacobucci was arrested in Texas in Tatum's 1999 Chevrolet Suburban. She is being held in the Jasper County jail.
