Francis Wolke, 27, the man charged with killing former Atherton town arborist Kathy Hughes Anderson in her Menlo Park home last year, received an April 28 date for a pre-trial conference and a June 22 date for a jury trial at a hearing Friday, Nov. 1, according to the San Mateo County District Attorney's Office.
Wolke re-entered a plea of not guilty that he had entered for the first time in May at the same hearing, according to the DA's office.
Wolke had arrived in the Bay Area from Cincinnati just a few days before the killing, and there is no known relationship or contact between Wolke and Hughes Anderson, nor a motive for the crime, according to the District Attorney's Office.
Wolke had an outstanding arrest warrant from the Santa Clara County Sheriff's Office for prowling and possession of narcotics stemming from a 2014 case, according to Menlo Park police.
Wolke remains in custody on $10 million bail.
