COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) -- Former Missouri running back Derrick Washington is scheduled to face trial Friday in the first of two criminal cases that led to his dismissal from the team one year ago.

Washington is accused of two counts of misdemeanor domestic violence after an ex-girlfriend said he poked her eyes and choked her during an argument last September.

He also faces a Sept. 20 trial on a felony sex assault charge involving a former Missouri athletics tutor. Both trials have been repeatedly delayed.

The one-time Tiger co-captain has pleaded not guilty in both cases. He was dismissed from the team days before the start of the 2010 season.
