A trial for a rural Linwood man accused of killing his girlfriend has been postponed until August, according to court records.

The case of Dan S. Flannagan had been scheduled to go to trial next week. But the trial has been continued until Aug. 26.

The new court date was set during a hearing Thursday morning in Leavenworth County District Court, according to court records.

Flannagan, 64, is charged with intentional second-degree murder in connection to the death of Constance Perryman.

Perryman’s body was found April 6, 2018, on property located off of 198th Street south of Linwood. She reportedly died from a shotgun wound.

Flannagan and Perryman had been living together on the property.

According to court records, new discovery evidence has been found in the case. The defense requested a continuance of the jury trial, which was granted.

Five days are being set aside in August for the jury trial.
