A Peoria judge Thursday set a new trial date for a former Baptist missionary, accused of murdering his wife last year on Valentine's Day in Peoria. Nathan Leuthold's trial has been moved back to July. Leuthold wants certain statements he allegedly made to police suppressed at his upcoming trial and a suppression hearing is set for next week. Leuthold is charged with the shooting death of his wife, Denise who was found dead in her parents' home on Mossville Road. Police believe Leuthold staged the murder to look like a burglary.
