WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (WJHL) — The trial for Sheila Keen-Warren, the woman accused of killing another woman in Florida while dressed as a clown, has been pushed back to next year.

Keen-Warren has been in jail in Florida for more than three years awaiting trial for first-degree murder.

She was arrested in Southwest Virginia in 2017.

Keen-Warren, the former owner of the Purple Cow restaurant in Kingsport, is accused of killing her husband’s then-wife, Marlene Warren, in Florida in 1990 while dressed as a clown.

Michael Warren and Keen-Warren were married a decade after Marlene’s death. The couple lived in Abingdon until Keen-Warren’s arrest.

She was originally scheduled to appear in a jury trial on Sept. 8.
