BUNKER HILL, Ind. (AP) - A northern Indiana judge has set a June trial date for a man accused of fatally stabbing a 76-year-old scoutmaster in front of Scouts he was leading on a nature hike.
The Miami Circuit Court judge on Thursday set a June 17 trial for 24-year-old Shane Golitko, who's charged in Art Anderson's August 2011 killing. Anderson bled to death in front of two Boy Scouts he was leading on a hike along the Nickel Plate Trail in Bunker Hill, about 60 miles north of Indianapolis.
The Kokomo Tribune reports that results of court-ordered psychiatric exams on Golitko could push back his murder trial.
Miami County deputy public defender Kristina L. Lynn says those exams have been completed.
Defense attorneys have said they might pursue an insanity defense.
