A suspect accused of shooting into an Evansville home will not go on trial Wednesday as expected.

On Tuesday, a judge chose to delay the trial of Kelly Wickware.

According to the court, the delay is due to case congestion.

All parties will appear in court Wednesday to discuss a new trial date.

Police say Wickware and Clifton Fletcher, Jr. got into an argument with someone at a home in the 700 block of East Blackford.

Witnesses say Wickware and Fletcher later returned and fired several shots into the house with children in the area.

Police later found Wickware and Fletcher at Bayard Park where they allegedly ran off leaving behind two handguns.
