The trial for a man accused of killing his girlfriend at a Yakutat lodge is set for next March.
Robert Kowalski, 51, is charged in the death of his then-girlfriend Sandra Perry at Glacier Bay Lodge in 1996.
The trial was to begin in November. But Juneau Superior Court Judge Louis Menendez granted an unopposed request from Kowalski’s lawyer to go ahead with the trial on March 11.
Investigators at the time had ruled the death accidental. The case was re-opened in January 2009 after Kowalski was charged and convicted in the 2008 murder of his girlfriend in Montana.
