A Coopersville man charged with involuntary manslaughter in the death of his wife has had his trial postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The trial for Jaron Paul Chatman was scheduled to begin Tuesday. Instead, a case status conference is scheduled for Sept. 8, a court official said, and a new trial date has not been set.
