RAPID CITY, S.D. (KOTA) - The last remaining suspect in a 2015 murder for hire has a trial date set for 2022.

Hirth’s case has centered around his competency.

In court, Jan. 19 defense attorneys for Hirth said with the length of time the trial is expected to run as well as giving the state a chance to hire experts to review the competency exams that both defense and state requested a trial date in January of 2022.

Judge Heidi Linngren blocked off the month of January, beginning on Jan. 3 until the end of the month for the trial.
