Trial dates set for four people accused of killing local real estate agent

YAKIMA, Wash. -- Trial dates have been set for four people accused of killing a local real estate agent.

All are being tried separately for the death of Vern Holbrook. He died months after a severe beating.

Jill Taylor's and Daniel Blizzard's trials are scheduled for July. Luis Gomez-Monges' and Adriana Mendez's trials are scheduled for September.

Judge Ruth Reukauf will still preside over the case. Yesterday, she rejected a defense motion to dismiss the charges because of claims of misconduct by prosecutors.
