POLSON — A district judge has set a trial date for a man and woman accused of attacking a Ronan daycare owner who refused to hand over the man’s children.
Daycare owner Martha McClure previously said she didn’t turn over the children to 31-year-old Francis Jackson and 21-year-old Tashiana Schlensker on Oct. 7 because he does not have custody of them and he appeared intoxicated.
Schlensker has pleaded not guilty to assault with a weapon, with prosecutors saying she hit McClure in the face with a snow shovel. Jackson is charged with aggravated burglary.
KERR-AM reported Wednesday that District Judge James Manley has set a March 14 trial date for Jackson and Schlensker.
Both are jailed in Lake County with bond set at $100,000.
