A Marine corporal accused of killing his Army nurse wife won't have his day in court until a grand jury indicts him in her death.
An attorney for Marine Cpl. John Wimunc said a hearing scheduled for Tuesday has been continued.
Wimunc is charged with first-degree murder and arson in the death of his wife, 2nd Lt. Holley Wimunc, of Dubuque, Iowa.
The 24-year-old Holley Wimunc was found dead this summer in a wooded area near Camp Lejune shortly after authorities found her Fayetteville apartment burned. She was a maternity ward nurse at Fort Bragg's Womack Army Medical Center.
The court hearing of John Wimunc's colleague, Lance Cpl. Kyle Alden, also was continued. Alden is charged with being an accessory to murder. He also is expected to be indicted.
