Kaelin Glazier murder trial reset for September

William Frank Simmons, 30, will wait until September to be tried for the murder of 15-year-old Kaelin Rose Glazier in 1996.

Simmons, who has pleaded not guilty to the murder charge, is reportedly the last person to have seen Glazier alive.

According to police, she stopped by his home on Nov. 6, 1996, while on her way to the Applegate Christian Fellowship for a youth group meeting.

After Glazier's remains were found in April 2008, an interagency task force made up of the Jackson County Sheriff's Department, Medford police, the Oregon State Police Forensic Laboratory, the district attorney's office, and the FBI combined efforts to gather evidence throughout the investigation, and eventually build a case against Simmons.

If convicted of murder, Simmons faces life in prison with a mandatory 25 years before being eligible for parole.

His trial had been set to begin on Feb. 8 but is postponed until Sept. 6. His pretrial conference scheduled for Jan. 31 also has been cancelled.
