Roeder to go to Trial for Tiller Murder
July 28, 2009
In a preliminary hearing today, Judge Warren Wilbert determined there was enough evidence to send Scott Roeder, 51, to trial on all charges in connection with the murder of NAF member Dr. George Tiller. Roeder has been charged with one count of first-degree murder and two counts of aggravated assault.
Roeder entered a plea of not guilty. A trial date is scheduled for September 21, though murder trials are often continued to later dates. Roeder’s bond will remain at $20 million.
