Hearing delayed in Charlie Sheen case

ASPEN, Colo. (AP) -- A judge in Colorado has postponed a hearing in the domestic violence case involving Charlie Sheen and his wife.

District Court Judge James B. Boyd delayed until Feb. 8 a hearing on whether to vacate a restraining order that keeps Sheen from his wife, Brooke. She called police on Christmas Day to report alleged domestic violence.

The Sheens have since reconciled and had been scheduled to appear in Boyd's court in Aspen on Friday.

That restraining order was modified Wednesday so that Sheen could visit his wife in a Los Angeles hospital, where she was admitted with a high fever and an infection following oral surgery.

Charlie Sheen was already scheduled to appear in Aspen on Feb. 8 on the original charges.
