Menendez Retrial Dates Set

Compiled From Wire Services

A June 12 retrial date was scheduled for Erik and Lyle Menendez, whose first trial on charges of killing their wealthy parents ended with juries unable to reach verdicts.

Superior Court Judge Stanley Weisberg announced the trial date during a hearing Monday. The judge also scheduled another hearing for Wednesday, when he will set a schedule for filing legal motions in the case.

Lyle, 27, and Erik, 24, are charged with murder in the Aug. 20, 1989, slayings of Jose and Kitty Menendez in the family’s Beverly Hills home.

The brothers admitted the shotgun slayings but said they feared their parents were going to kill them.
