The pretrial conference date for an Iowa City man charged with first-degree murder in the death of his girlfriend has been continued, according to online court documents.

Eric Osborn, 27, allegedly killed his live-in girlfriend by strangling her in the early morning hours of March 7, 2010.

According to police reports, Osborn, who told police he had smoked marijuana, drank alcohol, and taken pills, told police he struck Sarah McKay with a baseball bat, then killed her because he didn’t want her to suffer.

The pretrial conference is set for Nov. 3, and the status conference is set for Sept. 9.
