A trial date has been set for a suspect accused in a cold case murder dating back nearly 14 years.

James Stewart is charged with shooting Christopher Pierre to death back in 1999. Pierre's body was found at the corner of Fremont and Humbolt streets in South Bend.

Stewart was charged with the crime less than a year later, but just before the trial was set to start, a key witness backed out.

The charges were dismissed in June of 2002, but the county resumed charges in March of this year.

The trial is set to begin in June.
