FARMINGTON, Utah (AP) -- More than 27 years later, a fall trial has been set for the man accused of killing a Davis County woman.

Jury selection begins on Halloween in the case of Edward Owens. He's accused of strangling Karin Strom at her Woods Cross home in 1980.

In March, the 56-year-old Owens was charged with murder. The case was revived with DNA tests that weren't available back in 1980.

Police first suspected the victim's husband. But a judge dismissed charges against Steve Strom, saying there wasn't enough evidence.
