LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Arraignment is due to be postponed for a former chef who told police he stabbed his wife to death with knives and a cleaver in their Las Vegas kitchen.

Richard Magdayo Dahan's defense lawyer and the prosecutor in the case say they'll seek a different date Wednesday before a trial judge where Dahan can enters his plea in the Jan. 10 slaying of 28-year-old Daisy Casalta Dahan.

Deputy Clark County Public Defender Ed Kane and Prosecutor Richard Scow said a panel of prosecutors is still due to determine if Dahan will face the death penalty.

The 40-year-old Dahan walked into a police station shortly after the slaying and told detectives he killed his wife because she wanted a divorce.

He said they married just two years earlier in the Philippines.
