Sentencing for Mullis Delayed Until March

The sentencing for an Earlville man accused of killing his wife has been pushed back three months.

Todd Mullis’ sentencing was scheduled for December 17th in Delaware County District Court. It has been rescheduled for March 17th at 1:30 pm.

Mullis was found guilty of First Degree Murder by a Dubuque County jury in September. The jury sided with prosecutors, who said Mullis fatally stabbed his wife, Amy, in the back with a corn rake on their Earlville farm last November.

Earlier this month, Mullis’ attorneys filed a motion for a new trial.

He is currently being held at the Buchanan County Jail.
