Opening arguments were delayed Monday in the Cleveland trial of a woman charged with killing a multiple sclerosis patient with a bagel.

An attorney's schedule conflict will delay the trial until Wednesday morning.

Live-in nurse Wanda Kanner was indicted on murder and involuntary manslaughter charges in the 2001 death of 49-year-old Darlene Amberik of North Royalton.

The woman could not feed herself or swallow solid foods. She was found dead after Kanner allegedly gave her a bagel and then left.

The investigation began when police learned that the victim's husband had bought an engagement ring for Kanner before his wife died.
