PRESCOTT, Ariz. (AP) - The case of a Scottsdale man accused of killing a woman in northern Arizona has been set for trial.
Robert Wiesner faces the death penalty if convicted of fatally shooting Lorraine Long at a home she owned in Seligman in 2010.
The Daily Courier (http://bit.ly/RZ2xUh) reports that the 45-day trial is scheduled to begin in March, barring a settlement.
Prosecutors claim that Wiesner kidnapped Long and drove her from Phoenix to Seligman before killing her.
The case has been marked by repeated changes in judges. At least four already have presided over the case.
Yavapai County Superior Court Judge David Mackey is trying to secure a judge to oversee a settlement conference in which Wiesner could work out a plea agreement.
