Trial date set for SF men accused of killing Italian police officer

The trial for two San Francisco men accused of killing an Italian Police officer will begin early next year.

The lawyer for Finnegan Elder says the trial has been fast-tracked, with the first hearing scheduled for Feb. 26.

Elder and Gabriel Natale are charged with the fatal stabbing of a Rome Police officer in July.

Italian prosecutors say Elder confessed to killing the officer during a scuffle, that followed a drug deal.
