BRADENTON, Fla. (AP) - A Bradenton man previously convicted of killing his parents will be retried in April.
A Manatee County judge set the new trial date Monday, after 28-year-old Blaine Ross' attorney waived his right to a speedy trial.
The Florida Supreme Court vacated the two murder convictions and death sentences in May, ruling by a 4-3 vote that deputies violated Ross' Miranda rights.
Authorities say Ross fatally beat his parents, Richard and Kathleen Ross, while the slept in January 2004. Ross was convicted of murder and sentenced to death in 2007.
