A trial has been delayed for two men charged with attempted murder in what police say was a plot to have a pregnant Detroit woman killed because one of the men didn't want another child.
The trial for Jamal Rogers and Antonio Mathis was to start Tuesday in Macomb County Circuit Court.
The Macomb Daily of Mount Clemens reports it was delayed until May 21 due to a scheduling issue.
Attorneys involved say the trial should take about two weeks.
The Warren men are accused in the May 2012 attack on Latonya Bowman.
Police said Bowman and Rogers -- who is the child’s father -- were at a home in Warren when a gun was put to Bowman's head, she was also blindfolded and bound with duct tape.

She was then driven in her own SUV to a vacant house in Detroit, doused in lighter fluid and set on fire.
Police said as Bowman tried to roll on the ground to put out the flames, she was shot in the shoulder. As she lay burning and wounded, she played dead until her two attackers fled, police said. She then drove herself to a gas station, then her mother’s house before she was taken to a hospital.
She has since given birth to a baby boy.
Rogers' lawyer wants to keep his client's statement to police from trial. Mathis' lawyer wants separate trials.
Police say Rogers was Bowman's former boyfriend and wanted her dead because he didn't want another child.
