LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The trial has been delayed for the former funeral home director accused of crimes that shocked grieving families.

Richard Pyke faces 61 charges in Clark County related to the R.D. Pyke Funeral Home in Henryville, Indiana.

Pyke is accused of selling and cashing in on funeral insurance policies before a person actually died. Police say Pyke even gave the wrong remains to one grieving family.

The 44-year-old has already been sentenced on similar charges in Floyd County.

Pyke's Clark county trial is now set for December.
