The Court of Common Pleas set a date for the muder trial of a Manayunk man.
Gregory Mitros faces three-degree murder charges for the June 20, 2011, death of Lynda Karlin-Mitros, who died of a gun shot wound, as Patch previously reported.
On Thursday, Judge Jeffrey P. Minehart set a Feb. 22, 2013, trial, according to court records.
For many years, the Mitroses lived on the 100-block of Markle Street, where they raised one son. In previous court appearances, relatives have packed the chamber supporting Mitros. Their hope was to get his charge reduced.
Defense attorney Quinn has previously said the case hinges on how the gun, which was normally kept upstairs, shot Karlin-Mitros on the home's first floor.
Quinn said, that Mitros “never meant to shoot his wife.”
NewsWorks.org previously reported that Mitros saw his wife with the gun and tried to wrestle it from her.
Mitros posted 10 percent of his $150,000 bail in August 2011. Through various continuances, the trial has been delayed through this week.
