Bloomfield Court Appearance Set
IOWA CITY (CBS 2/FOX 28) --
73-year-old John Bloomfield will appear in court tomorrow to ask a judge to release him from jail until his trial because of an illness.
Bloomfield is charged in the 1997 murder of his wife, Frances Bloomfield.
Investigators say Bloomfield hit Frances in the head, strangled her, then wrapped her body and dumped it in Illinois.
Officials say they linked him to the crime late last year because of advances in DNA technology.
Bloomfield's lawyer previously said his client was in quote "poor health."
