SOUTH BEND, Ind. (WNDU) - A trial date is set for one of two suspects in the 1988 murder of Miriam Rice.

Barbara Brewster is accused of helping her then-boyfriend, George Kearney, cover up the crime.

Rice was 28 years old and pregnant when she was kidnapped and killed along the St. Joseph River. The case was cold for 30 years and reopened last July.

On Monday, Kearney pleaded guilty to the murder.

Brewster's trial date is set for June 10.
