    2021 trial date for man accused of killing 2 Arizona girls

    TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — A Tucson judge has set a February 2021 trial date for a convicted sex offender accused of killing two Arizona girls.

    Attorneys on both sides asked that the trial of Christopher Matthew Clements not begin next year. It's estimated to last nine weeks.

    Prosecutors estimate there are 80 witnesses to interview beforehand.

    The 37-year-old Clements attended his status conference Monday [10/14].





    and I have in my notes:
    For Fraud, burglary & theft charges next Evidentiary hearing on 11/1 and 11/8.

    Christopher Clements has a status hearing January 13, 2020 at 10am in front of Judge Deborah Bernini for a 30 minute status conference. The case number is CR20183978. There is no other information and that appears to be the only information public for Pima county.
