Woods, 54, was planning on representing himself until he retained a lawyer last week.

At the request of his counsel, the hearing has been postponed.

In 2014, a Saskatoon jury found Woods guilty of first-degree murder in the death of his wife Dorothy. He continues to serve a life sentence with no chance of parole for 25 years.

No new date for the hearing has been scheduled.
