TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) -- A new trial date is set for a man accused of killing two women.
Phillip Cheatham was previously convicted in the 2003 shooting deaths of Annetta Roberson and Gloria Jones.
In January, the Kansas Supreme Court ordered a new trial, saying Cheatham received ineffective counsel.
On Friday, Shawnee Co. District Court Judge Mark Braun scheduled the new trial to begin on January 5. He's set aside six weeks for the proceeding.
