The trial of a man accused of strangling his girlfriend to death has been postponed. 

Robert Francis Bilunas, 49, was set for a jury trial on July 9. He has a new pre-trial hearing set for Aug. 9.

Bilunas was still in the Kerr County jail, on bonds totaling about $400,000, as of Thursday after having been arrested Sept. 29.

That day, Kerrville police officers who responded to assist EMS reportedly found Xiomara Renee Saenz, 38, unconscious. She was taken to Peterson Regional Medical Center for treatment and pronounced dead shortly after her arrival. 

Pending charges against Bilunas include murder, violating a protective order, giving a false report to police, family violence assault, obstruction or retaliation and two counts of tampering with physical evidence.
