A defense attorney and prosecutors have agreed to delay the trial on securities fraud charges of a former Indiana money
manager who tried to fake his death by jumping from a small plane before it crashed in Florida.

Marcus Schrenker’s
attorney told a Hamilton County judge on Thursday that he was still awaiting information related to the case. Prosecutors
didn’t object, and the judge scheduled a hearing for March 25 to possibly set a new trial date.

The 39-year-old
Schrenker has pleaded not guilty to charges he bilked clients out of $1.5 million. The suburban Indianapolis man was sentenced
in August to four years in federal prison on charges related to the January 2009 plane crash.
