A trial date has been set for a man accused of pushing his wife to her death from a cliff at Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore.

Jury selection is scheduled for January 30th and February 1st in the trial of Thomas David Richardson. Opening statements and testimony are expected to take place starting February 4th in Manistique.

The Mining Journal of Marquette reports the trial is expected to include six weeks of testimony.

Richardson, of McBain, is charged with an open count of murder and with manslaughter in the death of Juanita Richardson, who fell off a 140-foot-high cliff overlooking Lake Superior in June 2006.

Thomas Richardson says he is innocent.
