The Kwame Kilpatrick trial was expected to run into December and possibly January. 

Now, there seems to be little question we'll be watching the case well into January if not beyond.

WXYZ's Ross Jones reports that the trial has been postponed until at least Nov. 13 to give attorney Gerald Evelyn (pictured to very right) time to recover from an illness.

Evelyn, one of three lawyers for Kilpatrick co-defendant Bobby Ferguson, had to take a break while cross-examining a witness on Monday. He ended up being taken to the hospital by ambulance.

Jones reports that friends say Evelyn may have been suffering from exhaustion.
