Tabb Trial Pushed Back

The trial date has been pushed back for a former minister accused of murdering his wife.  A Smith County Judge accepted a motion for continuance from Michael Tabb's defense early Tuesday.

Tabb is accused of beating and murdering his wife inside the First United Methodist Church parsonage in Troup last summer.

The case against the methodist minister was slated to begin on May 1st. Tabb will next appear in court for a pre-trial hearing on May 13.
