Trial Jan. 19 in Cleveland in wife's cyanide death

Trial Jan. 19 in Cleveland in wife's cyanide death

A former international fugitive will go on trial next year in the cyanide death of his wife in suburban Cleveland.
A judge in Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court on Wednesday set a trial date for Jan. 19 for Yazeed Essa.
Essa, a doctor, had been a fugitive until he was arrested in Cyprus and eventually agreed to return to the United States to stand trial in connection with the 2005 death of wife Rosemarie.
Appearing before Judge Deena Calabrese, Essa was handcuffed while wearing a dark business suit. He waived his right to a speedy trial.
His attorneys say they need the time to prepare his defense.
