A southeast Missouri man accused of first-degree murder will go to trial in March.

The Southeast Missourian reports that a judge on Monday scheduled a March 11 trial for Glen Scott Evans of Dexter. He is accused of killing 34-year-old Sean Crow, whose body was found inside a pickup truck in February outside a fast-food restaurant in the town of Advance.

A trial date has not been set for co-defendant Matt Cook, also of Dexter. A status hearing for Cook is Jan. 6.

Evans' attorney said in a Dec. 12 court hearing that Evans was too drunk and sleep-deprived to know what he was doing when he waived his Miranda rights and talked to police after his arrest.
