The attempted murder trial of a former University of Iowa student has been pushed back again.

Branden Plummer, a 20-year-old Iowa City resident, allegedly assaulted police Sgt. Brian Krei on Nov. 18, 2011. Police reports said Krei approached Plummer because he was reportedly disrupting traffic at the intersection of Linn and Burlington Streets. Plummer allegedly proceeded to strangle Krei and hit his head against the sidewalk, causing him to lose consciousness.

Plummer attended classes at UI last semester but is no longer listed in the university directory.

The attempted murder and willful-injury trial is now set to begin July 9 in the Tama County Courthouse. The pretrial conference is set for June 29 in Johnson County.
