ST. JOHNSBURY, Vt. (AP) - Two Vermont men charged with killing a Sheffield grandmother almost five years ago are going to be tried separately.

Last month a judge ordered that 33-year-old Keith Baird and 23-year-old Michael Norrie be tried separately for the 2010 killing of 78-year-old Pat O’Hagan during a robbery at her home.

The Caledonian Record (https://bit.ly/1HIME0d ) reports that Caledonia County State’s Attorney Lisa Warren asked for separate trials because statements Norrie made to police about Baird could not be used if they were tried together.

The defense attorneys in the case did not object to separate trials.

A third suspect, 27-year-old Richard Fletcher, pleaded guilty earlier this year to lesser charges in exchange for his cooperation in the cases against Baird and Norrie.

No trial dates have been set for Baird or Norrie.
