Hendrix trial date is reset

The long-awaited trial of Jason Hendrix has been postponed.

Hendrix, who was a volunteer firefighter with the Edgerton-Trimble Fire Protection District, is charged with second-degree murder, second-degree arson and property damage for allegedly setting a barn on fire near Edgerton on June 2, 2001. It was on the way to that fire that volunteer firefighter Travis Brown of the Dearborn Volunteer Fire Department was killed when the tanker truck he was riding in overturned.

The Hendrix trial has been scheduled to begin Sept. 23 under an agreement between Patrick Peters, recently appointed as special prosecutor, and the public defender's office.
