Judge Sets New, Strong Date for Hilton Re-trial

KENNEWICK, Wash.- The re-trial for accused murderer Kevin Hilton is up moved from April 2008 to January.

A new judge brought in from Asotin County told Hilton's defense that the date provides more than enough time for them to prepare, or he'd find Hilton a new defense team.

Hilton is accused of killing his landlords in 2002.

A jury convicted him a year later, but an appeals court overturned that ruling because of an improper search warrant.
