Gaither, Sweet, Plead Innocent in Latisha Frazier Murder; Trial Set for Nov. 2012

Brian Gaither and Johnnie Sweet each pleaded innocent today to first degree and felony murder and kidnapping in the death of Latisha Frazier in Aug. 2010.

If convicted, they face life sentences without the possibility of parole. Prosecutor Chris Kavanaugh said there are no plea discussions in the cases.

Judge William Jackson set a trial date in the case for Nov. 19, 2012, despite Sweet’s attorney’s objections that it violated his client’s right to a speedy trial.

Jackson said there were no dates before November available on his calendar.
