GOSHEN — A judge has reluctantly agreed to postpone the trial for an Elkhart woman accused of killing her husband so she can find an expert to help with her defense.

Knesha Carruthers, 34, is charged with murder in the stabbing death of 33-year-old Jimmie Gillam on July 27, 2019. Gillam died in the hospital from a severed aorta after police found him at the bottom of the steps to his West Jefferson Street house, with a 6-inch long stab wound to the chest.
