Hearing Delayed For Daughter Of DE Court Gunman

Posted: Updated:

WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - A federal judge has postponed a detention hearing for the daughter of a man who killed his former daughter-in-law and another woman at a Delaware courthouse in order to give her defense attorney more time to prepare his case.

The judge on Thursday continued the hearing until next week after a prosecutor recited the government's allegations against 41-year-Amy Gonzalez, drawing several objections from the defense. Gonzalez is charged with conspiring with her parents and brother to torment and stalk her former sister-in-law, Christine Belford, following Belford's bitter divorce and custody battle against Gonzalez' brother, David Matusiewicz.

David Matusiewicz's father, Thomas Matusiewicz, fatally shot Belford and her friend, Laura Mulford, in February after they showed up for a child support hearing. He then exchanged gunfire with police before killing himself.
