Baker trial date rescheduled
Court Gavel

The trial for the Great Bend man whose trailer came unhitched and killed two motorcyclists on 10th Street in 2014 has been rescheduled for this summer.
A jury trial had been set for May 2-6 for William Howard Baker, 60, who is charged with two counts of involuntary manslaughter in connection with the accident that occurred on Aug. 16, 2014, and claimed the lives of Reno County couple Shawn and Danielle Schellenger.
Both defense attorney Charles O’Hara and Barton County Attorney Douglas Matthews have requested more time to prepare their cases. The new trial date is Aug. 15-19.
