Saying he expected the case against Steven King II to be resolved once homicide charges are filed in the disappearance and death of an East Toledo toddler, an attorney asked Lucas County Common Pleas Judge Ruth Ann Franks today to postpone Mr. King’s trial.

Attorney Pete Rost said authorities still are awaiting the report of a forensic anthropologist hired to examine the remains of Elaina Steinfurth, who disappeared June 2 and whose badly decomposed remains were found in a box inside a garage at Mr. King’s Federal Street address.

Mr. King, 23, of 704 Federal St., and the child’s mother, Angela Steinfurth, 25, oof 329 Valleywood Dr., each are charged only with obstructing justice for allegedly lying to investigators, but additional charges are anticipated.

Judge Franks postponed Mr. King’s trial until Dec. 9.
