HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) - A trial date has been set for later this month for a 35-year-old Hutchinson man accused of fatally shooting a Kansas State Fair worker last year.

The Hutchinson News (http://bit.ly/1rR004F ) reports Michael Brisco is charged with first-degree murder, second-degree murder in the alternate, criminal possession of a firearm and intimidation of a witness.

He is accused in the September 2013 slaying of 26-year-old Sem Adrien, whose body was found about 50 feet from Brisco’s home.

Police say Brisco admitted in an interview with police that he had gotten into a physical altercation with Adrien, but he has pleaded not guilty to the charges.

The trial is scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. on Oct. 20 in the Reno County Courthouse.
