A trial has been scheduled for March 2018 for the Storey County man accused of killing his wife three years ago.

Bret Black pleaded not guilty to a charge of murder in district court on Friday. Black is accused of killing his wife, Judy, back in 2014.

Both sides said they needed time to investigate the case.

His lawyers have argued that Judy Black died from an accidental fall down the stairs in their home.

A judge ordered Bret Black back in April to stand trial, saying there was enough evidence in the case. He has been out on bail and allowed to relocated to California as he awaits trial.
