LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- The trial for a former Louisville priest accused of sexual abuse has been pushed back.

Jury selection was supposed to get underway this afternoon in the trial of Father James Schook.

He's charged with seven counts of sodomy in the alleged abuse of two boys back in the 1970s.

His trial is now set to start on April 15.

Schook has been ruled competent to stand trial.

His attorneys had argued that he is terminally ill and too sick to stand trial.
