BENTONVILLE, Ark. (AP) - A trial date has been set for next year for a northwest Arkansas man charged in the death of a 6-year-old girl.

Zachary Holly had been scheduled to go to trial this week in the 2012 killing of Jersey Bridgeman, but the case was pushed back. Fayetteville television station KHOG reports (https://bit.ly/1E8JtuK ) that Holly’s trial is now set for May 11 in Bentonville.

Holly has pleaded not guilty to capital murder and rape in the girl’s death.

Authorities have said Jersey died of asphyxia or lack of oxygen. Authorities say Holly lived next door to Jersey and her family.
