Daniels will face trial in June 2008

A trial date has been set for Craig Daniels Jr., the man accused of murdering two people in a Parker Street home in Bowling Green last March.

The trial will be held June 10-20, 2008.

Daniels is being charged with two counts of aggravated murder for the March 29 shooting deaths of his ex-girlfriend, Alicia Castillion, 30, and Castillion’s new boyfriend, John C. Mitchell, 22.

Daniels is also being charged with two counts of burglary for breaking into Castillion’s home and another nearby home that same night.

He has pled not guilty to all four charges.

After the killings, the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force spent four days searching for Daniels before finding him hidden under a pine tree in his mother’s front yard near Louisville, Ohio.

At a hearing in June, Daniels waived his right to a speedy trial to be held within 90 days of his arrest.

If convicted, Daniels may be sentenced to death or to life in prison.

His next court appearance is scheduled for Oct. 1.
