Brother's hearing delayed again

GEORGETOWN — A status hearing for the man whose sister's mummified body was found in the trunk of his car last year has been rescheduled for a second time because his attorneys are still waiting for medical records.

Timothy Allen Brown's status hearing, which was scheduled for Friday morning, has been rescheduled for May 1. The hearing was delayed for the same reason last month.

Brown, 30, was arrested in October after police found the badly decomposed body of his sister, Penny Michelle Brown, in the trunk of his car, which was found in St. Louis. He was charged with abuse or neglect of an adult, interstate flight to avoid prosecution, tampering with physical evidence, eight counts of theft over $300, endangering the welfare of a minor and abuse of a corpse.

Investigators say Brown had been cashing Social Security disability checks of his sister, who used a wheelchair.

Brown pleaded not guilty to the charges in February.
