Authorities have scheduled the jury trial for a western South Dakota man accused of killing his ex-girlfriend and her unborn child.
The trial of 32-year-old Michael Young is expected to begin Aug. 12. He has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder and fetal homicide charges.
His attorney did not immediately return a call seeking comment Monday.
Authorities allege that Young stabbed 30-year-old Morgan Myers to death in a Walmart parking lot on April 2012. Myers was pregnant with his child.
He is being held without bond at the Pennington County Jail.
