Trial pushed back for Ellensburg man charged with raping 5-year-old girl
KITTITAS COUNTY, Wash. -- The trial for an Ellensburg man accused of raping a five-year-old girl earlier this year has been pushed back.
Michael C. Owen, 36, was charged with first-degree child rape in February after the victim told her mom and detectives she was raped in January.
Owen is an acquaintance of the family.
Owen waived his right to a speedy trial this week as prosecutors seek to have the victim testify.
The new trial date will be September 12.
