Hot Spring County Circuit Judge Henry Means Monday cancelled a pre-trial conference in which a trial date for Hot Springs Lt. Thurman Abernathy was expected to be set.

Abernathy is charged in the 1976 death of Garland County Sheriff’s Deputy Linda Edwards, whose skeletal remains were found in Hot Spring County about six months after her disappearance.

A spokesman for Hot Spring County Prosecuting Attorney John Cole said Means postponed the conference until sometime in July.
