PONTIAC, Mich. (AP) -- A 67-year-old serial strangling suspect from Ohio is scheduled to stand trial on a first-degree murder charge in the 1968 killing of a Michigan woman.
Nolan R. George of Hamilton was scheduled to go on trial starting Monday in Oakland County Circuit Court. He's charged in the killing of 36-year-old Gwendolyn Perry of Pontiac.
Authorities say George strangled women with their undergarments.
Defense lawyer Michael McCarthy has tried to keep a decades-old confession from George out of the trial, saying he was promised immunity for the statement.
George was freed in 1982 after 12 years in prison for killing 22-year-old Frances Brown of Lake Orion. He also served time in Ohio for strangling a woman and is suspected in other attacks.
