Tentative trial date set for suspect in overdose death

COEUR D'ALENE - A tentative trial date has been set for a man accused of forcing a 22-year-old to eat a lethal dose of methamphetamine.

The Coeur d'Alene Press reports 43-year-old Shaun Patrick Kelly recently pleaded not guilty to charges in the case.

His trial is scheduled for November.

Authorities say Evan Mychal Larkin was held at gunpoint and forced to eat the lethal dose to prove he wasn't a police informant.
