The trial of an Iowa City man charged with attempted murder has been reset.

Gregory Phillips, 56, allegedly intended to kill his landlord and then himself after being forced to move from his residence.

On Sept. 4, 2008, Phillips allegedly entered his landlord’s office with a pistol, aimed, and pulled the trigger, but the weapon did not fire.

According to court documents, a Johnson County judge originally scheduled Phillips’ trial for Dec. 12, 2008, but that date has been reset numerous times; his trial is now scheduled for April 11.

A pretrial conference is scheduled for March 31.
