    SIGOURNEY, Iowa (AP) - There's a delay in the trial of Keokuk County Sheriff Jeff Shipley on a drunken driving charge.

    Shipley was arrested on July 27 in Sigourney. He was off-duty and in private vehicle.

    Shipley's trial in Keokuk County District Court was set for Oct.
    3. A judge granted a continuance, but no new date was set. The judge scheduled a pretrial conference for Feb. 15.

    Online court records show Shipley waived his right to a speedy
    trial on Wednesday. The judge delayed the trial on Thursday.

    Shipley pleaded guilty in 2008 to drunken boating. In April, he
    and two deputies were involved in a deadly shootout with a man at a
    farmhouse near Sigourney. A deputy and the man were killed.
