Trial Date Set for Brendan Dassey

By  | 

The 16-year-old accused along with his uncle of raping and killing a young woman in Manitowoc County will go to trial in eight months.
Brendan Dassey's trial is scheduled to begin February 5 and last two weeks.
Special Prosecutor Ken Kratz says Dassey told investigators he and Steven Avery planned the homicide and selected their victim.
The two are accused of assaulting, murdering and burning the body of 25-year-old Teresa Halbach last Halloween after she went to the family's rural auto salvage lot to photograph a minivan for sale.
Avery's trial is scheduled for October.
