Trial date set in local elderly woman's death

PONTIAC (AP) -- A trial is scheduled for August for two people in the killing of an 80-year-old Royal Oak woman at her home.

Alan Wood and Tonia Watson are charged with first-degree murder in the death of Nancy Dailey, who was found tied up in her home on Nov. 20. They were arrested two days later in Wayne County Canton Township, where police say they attempted to use one of Dailey's bank cards at an ATM.

On Wednesday, a trial date of Aug. 24 was scheduled for Oakland County Circuit Court. They'll get separate juries that will be selected before that date.

A July trial earlier had been planned.
