KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Antoine Fielder’s murder trial will start April 5.
Fielder has been charged with shooting and killing two Wyandotte County deputies in June 2018 at the Wyandotte County Courthouse. He pleaded not guilty Monday to two counts of capital murder and one count of aggravated robbery.
Fielder is due back in court Jan. 17 for a status conference, and his trial will begin at 9 a.m. on April 5.
Wyandotte County District Attorney Mark Dupree announced in February that the state would seek the death penalty against Fielder.
King, a 13-year veteran with the sheriff’s office, and Rohrer, a seven-year veteran, were transporting Fielder to the courthouse for a hearing in a robbery trial.
