COPY-Trial set for March for suspected serial killer

Associated Press - February 9, 2009 9:14 AM ET

BELLEVILLE, Ill. (AP) - A trial is scheduled to begin next month in St. Clair County or in Utah for a man accused in the killings of 4 women in two states.

Forty-2-year-old Donald Younge Jr.'s trial in St. Clair County is to begin March 23 in the deaths of 3 East St. Louis women.

If that Belleville trial doesn't start as planned, he may be sent to Utah for trial in the 1999 stabbing death of Amy Quinton. She was a 22-year-old theater student at the University of Utah.

Younge has spent six years in St. Clair County's jail, awaiting trial in the Illinois deaths of Tracy Williams, Ramona Sidney and Seriece Johnson. They ranged in age from 32 to 38.
