WRTV-TV reports Allen Superior Judge John Surbeck Jr. set an Oct. 15 trial date for David Bisard during an initial hearing Friday. Bisard is charged with operating a vehicle while intoxicated, reckless homicide and criminal recklessness in a crash that killed 30-year-old Eric Wells and injured two others when the police cruiser Bisard was driving slammed into two motorcycles stopped at a light.

The case was moved last month to Fort Wayne because Marion County Judge Grant Hawkins ruled Bisard could not get a fair trial in central Indiana because of media coverage.

If convicted, Bisard could face 20 or more years in prison.
