Judge sets new trial date in Brian Adkison kidnapping case
CHILLICOTHE - Brian Adkison will face a Livingston County jury again after a judge declared a mistrial last month.
Adkison's new trial is set for June 17-19.
He is charged with kidnapping, domestic assault and violation of a protection order in Caldwell County. The trial was moved to Livingston County after a change of venue request.
In January, a judge declared another mistrial on two of the three charges Adkison faced in Boone County, which included rape, burglary and deviate sexual assault.
Adkison also faces charges in four other Missouri counties after a string of alleged criminal activity in June 2013.
Authorities said Adkison kidnapped his ex-girlfriend and raped her. He later escaped from his Caldwell County jail cell and fled to Ohio before authorities caught him and brought him back to Missouri.
