A tentative trial date has been set for April 18 for accused murderer Burrell Michael Cushman in connection with the January 2014 death of his ex-girlfriend in Kirkland.
Cushman pled not guilty to second-degree murder charges last July after prosecutors accused him of strangling 28-year-old Kirkland resident Amy Hargrove in her mother’s home.
The couple had one child together and Hargrove had taken out a protection order against Cushman on allegations of abuse.
Cushman was later arrested in June 2014 after assaulting his then-girlfriend in Seattle. Bail was set at $1.5 million.
Cushman’s trail was originally set for March 21, but was pushed back due to a continuance of an omnibus hearing.
