Trial delayed for Robert Harmony

SALEM, Ohio (WKBN) – The trial of a man accused in a Columbiana County murder has been postponed again.

Robert Harmony, 45, of Salem, was expected to go on trial Tuesday for the November 2013 stabbing death of 23-year-old Gerrod Lanzendorfer.

Assistant County Prosecutor John Gamble said the trial has been rescheduled for June 24. This is the second time the trial has been delayed. The first trial date was set for January.

Harmony allegedly stabbed Lanzendorfer outside of a Salem bar. He then called 911 and walked to the Salem Police Department where he turned himself in. Harmony is a disabled veteran. Lanzendorfer had served in the Marine Corps.
