Tentative trial date set in Auburn tree poisoning


OPELIKA, Ala. (AP) — A tentative trial date has been set for Harvey Updyke Jr., the man accused of poisoning the Toomer's Oaks at Auburn University with a powerful herbicide during Auburn's national championship run in the 2010 football season.

The Opelika-Auburn News reports (http://bit.ly/WACBzO ) Updyke is scheduled to appear in court April 8. The television station reports a hearing will also be held Feb 13 to discuss pending motions — which include a request by the Lee County District Attorney's Office to revoke Updyke's bond.

Prosecutors are also requesting that Updyke be asked to pay a higher surety bond after being arrested in Hammond, La., where he was accused of threatening an employee at a home improvement store.
