SALT LAKE CITY — An 18-year-old Colorado man accused of killing his teenage girlfriend three years ago is set to go on trial in March.
Darwin Christopher Bagshaw got a new court date during a Friday court hearing in Salt Lake City. Prosecutors say he was 14 and thought the girl was pregnant when he killed her, though medical examiners later found that she wasn't.
The battered body of 15-year-old Anne Kasprzak (KAS-per-zack) was found floating in the Jordan River in March 2012.
An autopsy later showed she suffered multiple blows that crushed her face and head. Police said they found her blood on Bagshaw's shoelace, and he asked a friend to lie and say she'd had a nosebleed.
Bagshaw was arrested last fall, more than two years after the death.
