Trial date set for man accused in girlfriend’s death
BARRE, Vt. (AP) — A judge has set a trial date for the former boyfriend of a woman who was found dead on a roadside embankment in Vermont.
The Times Argus reports Judge Mary Morrissey said Monday Randal Gebo’s trial will start in mid-June. His attorney says it will last at least a week.
Gebo is facing a felony first-degree murder charge and aggravated vehicle operation without the owner’s consent in connection with 59-year-old Cindy Cook’s death.
Cook’s body was found in Middlesex in July 2017. An autopsy later determined she had been strangled.
Gebo was arrested in Illinois a few days after Cook’s body was found. Police say the 62-year-old was driving the woman’s car and using her credit cards.
Gebo is being held without bail.
