From The Reno Gazette Journal:
The Reno man accused of raping and killing Brianna Denison and sexually assaulting two other female college students more than a year ago will be tried on charges involving all three attacks at the same time.
Washoe District Judge Robert Perry denied a request by public defenders for James Michael Biela to severe the three cases for fear he wouldn't receive a fair trial if they were combined.
Biela is scheduled to go to trial in February on charges of murder, kidnapping and sexual assault in the abduction and murder of the 19-year-old Denison last January.
Under Perry's ruling Monday, he also will face at that time the two additional counts of sexual assault in the attacks on the two other women on the campus of the University of Nevada, Reno.
