Madison, NE (AP) - A trial date has been scheduled for a man who was granted a new trial by the Nebraska Supreme Court.
A pretrial conference is set for March 31 for De'Aris Trice, to be followed by a trial beginning May 12. In July the state's high court overturned the second-degree murder conviction of Trice. He'd been sentenced to 40 years to life in prison for killing 27-year-old Timothy Warren on Dec. 26, 2010.
The high court said it found fault in an instruction to Trice's jury.
