Ind. Courts - "Indianapolis police Officer David Bisard's trial set for October"

Jack Rinehart of WRTV6 has video and the story here this evening. It begins:

FORT WAYNE, Ind. - The trial of Indianapolis police Officer David Bisard, who's accused of causing a fatal 2010 crash while driving drunk, is set for October.

Allen Superior Judge John F. Surbeck Jr. will hear the case after concerns about pre-trial publicity in Marion County, where Bisard was on duty when he struck a group of motorcyclists in 2010, killing 30-year-old Eric Wells and seriously injuring two others, police said.

At an initial hearing Friday, Surbeck set Bisard's trial date as Oct. 15.

The judge set aside four weeks in mid-October and November to hear testimony from witnesses and weigh evidence.

A pre-trial date was set for May 31, and the judge said all motions must be filed by then. The judge has also set a June deadline for the discovery process.
