IRONDEQUOIT, N.Y. (WHEC) — The man accused of killing and dismembering his girlfriend back in May was supposed to be in court on Wednesday for a motions hearing, but instead, his court date was postponed.

Seth Larson has pleaded not guilty to charges of murder and concealing a corpse in the death of his girlfriend, Lisa Shuler.

She was found dismembered outside their home in Irondequoit in May, and additional remains were found in Durand Lake in June.

Larson’s hearing Wednesday was pushed back until Oct. 27, because Larson was exposed to someone with COVID-19 in jail.

Larson was initially a person of interest in Shuler’s death, triggering a multi-state search after he was pulled over for speeding in Cumberland, Maryland, just a few hours before Shuler’s body was discovered on May 25.

He was arrested in Lewis County, West Virginia after he called 911 to request an ambulance and emergency crews tracked his name and found he was wanted in Irondequoit.
