Bloomfield Trial Date Set
IOWA CITY (CBS 2/FOX 28) --
The trial date is now set for a former University of Iowa employee accused of killing his wife in 1997.
Authorities believe 73-year-old John Bloomfield hit his wife on the head, strangled her, then wrapped up her body and dumped it in Illinois.
Officials linked Bloomfield to the crime last month because of advances in DNA technology.
The first-degree murder trial is set to begin July 8th.
