FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WISH) - The new judge overseeing the IMPD Officer David Bisard case set a trial date on Friday.
The case moved to Allen County Friday.
Judge John Surbeckat set a trial date of Oct. 15 and blocked off four weeks for the trial.
Surbeckat took over the case after it moved to Fort Wayne following the granting of a change of venue request by Bisard's attorney last month. Thousand of files, motions and exhibits had to be moved to Fort Wayne in preparation for the trial.
Bisard is accused of hitting three motorcyclists with his squad car in August 2010, killing 30-year-old Eric Wells, and injuring two other motorcyclists . Prosecutors say Bisard was drunk at the time.
Marion County Judge Grant Hawkins initially said blood evidence that prosecutors say proves Bisard was drunk was inadmissible in court because it was improperly drawn. An appeals court overturned that decision.
On Friday, Bisard's attorney said he plans to again file a motion to suppress the blood evidence due to chain of custody issues.
