PROVO, Utah (AP) -- A trial date has been set for a woman accused of killing her boss at a retirement center to cover up embezzlement.

Forty-one-year-old Kerri Brown will stand trial March 17th in Provo.

Prosecutors say Brown shot businesswoman Mina Pajela in the back of the head because Pajela discovered Brown was embezzling about 30-thousand dollars from the Mira Vista Care Center in American Fork.

Witnesses testified the gun that killed Pajela in 2001 belonged to Brown's boyfriend.

The victim was found inside her burning car.
