POTEAU, Okla. (AP) — A new trial date has been set for a Canadian man charged in the 1983 killing of an Oklahoma college student.
Suhail Shanti's April trial was postponed and online court records posted Friday night show a September 10th trial date is now scheduled.
Shanti has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder in the death of 21-year-old Mohamed Ayman Al-Zein.
Both men were students at what is now Carl Albert State College in Poteau at the time of the slaying. Shanti was free on bond when he didn't show up for his 1984 trial.
