Trial date set for RC man accused of killing ex-girlfriend & unborn child


After almost two years and several delays, a preliminary trial date is set for a man accused of killing his pregnant ex–girlfriend.

Thirty two year old Michael Young will stand trial beginning August 12th on charges including first degree murder, fetal homicide, violation of a felony protection order, and stalking.

The stabbing happened April 2012.  Young is accused of stabbing 30 year old Morgan Myers several times as she left the Walmart parking lot, killing her and her unborn child.

Pennington County States Attorney Mark Vargo requested that presiding Judge Jeff Davis allow 5 days for the trial to take place.

A pre–trial hearing is set for July.

If convicted, Young faces a mandatory life sentence.
