KEENE, N.H. (AP) - A court appearance has been delayed for a former Fortune 500 executive accused of killing a Vermont couple expecting their first child in January.

Robert Dellinger, 53, of Sunapee, told police he was depressed and trying to kill himself on Dec. 7 when he drove his full-size pickup across an Interstate 89 median in Lebanon and into an oncoming car.

He faces two counts of second-degree murder in the deaths of 29-year-old Jason Timmons and 24-year-old Amanda Murphy, who was eight-months pregnant.

Dellinger was scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday in Keene, but the attorney general's office says the arraignment will be Friday morning in Lebanon instead.

Dellinger was senior vice president and chief financial officer at PPG Industries Inc. before he left in 2011 because of health issues.
