By By Johnathan Manning / American Press

The trial of man who police say killed his wife was continued until April 29.

Dale Winters, 39, is accused of shooting his 30-year-old wife, Michelle Mitchell, during an argument in their East Prien Lake

home on June 7, 2011.

Authorities said Mitchell sought help at Louisiana Chiropractic and Wellness Center across the street.

Winters’ attorney, Andrew Casanave, said he filed the continuance because he has another murder case that he expects to go

to trial Monday.
