Michael A. Studer, 31, was scheduled to go to trial on March 25 in Boone County. A pretrial hearing scheduled for Monday was continued. A new trial date has not been set.

Studer was charged in connection with the Oct. 8 shooting death of Adrienne Arnett, 61, at Abel's Quik Shop, 100 Shinn Lane, west of Hannibal. The trial of a second man charged in the case, Gary J. Wiltermood, 23, is scheduled to start April 30. He has a pretrial hearing scheduled for April 21.

The Missouri attorney general's office is handling the prosecution of both men after Marion County Prosecuting Attorney David Clayton recused himself from the cases in February. Joseph R. Schlotzhauer with the attorney general's office made a motion for a continuance in Studer's case on Feb. 24. No motions for a continuance have been made in Wiltermood's case.

The cases were moved from Marion County to Boone County in December on a change of venue request by lawyers representing Studer and Wiltermood.

Arnett was working at the store when she was shot and killed.

Wiltermood told the Hannibal Police Department in a statement that Studer had planned to rob the store and that Studer was the one who shot Arnett. Wiltermood and Studer had hoped to rob the store and obtain money for methamphetamine, police said.

Both men are being held in the Marion County Jail in lieu of $500,000 bond.
