April trial date set in Macon murder case

Posted: Updated:

MACON, Ga. (AP) - An April 28 trial date has been set in the killing of Mercer University law school graduate Lauren Giddings.

The Telegraph reports that Bibb County Superior Court Judge Howard Simms set the date Friday, but did not announce where the case will be heard.

Lawyers for Stephen McDaniel have requested a change of venue due to extensive publicity in central Georgia, but the judge has not yet ruled on that request.

McDaniel is accused of dismembering and killing Lauren Giddings, who was from Laurel, Md., in June 2011.

McDaniel was Giddings' next-door neighbor and a fellow Mercer University law school classmate.
