The plea hearing in the case of Ian Stewart, who is charged with the murder of his wife Diane at their Bassingbourn home in 2010, has been postponed until next month.
Stewart – who is 59 and originally from Letchworth – was due to enter a plea on Monday next week at St Albans Crown Court.
The case comes more than three years after he was convicted of murdering his fiancée, 51-year-old author Helen Bailey, in 2016 and dumping her body in a cesspit at the the home they shared in Royston.
Diane Stewart, died on June 25, 2010, aged 47 – a re-investigation into her death began after Stewart was sentenced to life in prison with a minimum term of 34 years. He is now due to enter a plea on October 22.
