TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - One of three people arrested for the murder of a Terre Haute radio personality will stand trial next spring.

John Collins is now set to stand trial for the murder of Matt Luecking on March 5th.

His final pretrial will be on January 4th.

Collins, along with Kathleen and Donald Featherstone is accused of breaking into Luecking's apartment last October and killing him in his sleep.

Collins had been set for trial last week, however, the trial of Robin Kraemer was also set for the same week, and took precedence.

Collins is currently in jail with no bond.
