Cottrell back in court on Thursday

Thursday, January 12, 2006

Chad A. Cottrell appeared in Parke Circuit Court, Rockville, Ind., before Judge Sam Swaim Thursday for a pre-trial conference. Cottrell is accused of murdering his wife and two stepdaughters over Halloween weekend.

"The court is ready to set a trial date as early as May," Swaim said.

Cottrell's attorneys Jesse Cook and Eric Koselke decided that another pre-trial conference would be needed before determining when Cottrell's trial will begin.

The next pre-trial court appearance for Cottrell has been set for March 23 at 1:30 p.m.
