Steiner murder trial set for November


A Meridian man accused of shooting and killing his wife in March has a trial date in November.

Eric Steiner is charged with first-degree murder and the use of a deadly weapon in the commission of that crime, in connection with the March 5 death of his wife, Christine Steiner.

He was arrested hours after she died, when he called Ada County Dispatch and told a dispatcher he had shot and killed his wife at their home on Chateau Drive in Meridian.

The Idaho Press reports, since his arrest that evening — which by all accounts was cooperative and uneventful — he has remained in the Ada County Jail.

On Thursday, Steiner didn’t enter a plea — he stood silent. The judge then entered a plea of not guilty for a defendant.

The jury trial to begin Nov. 4th; but Steiner is scheduled to appear in court again before that, on Oct. 10.

There is no custom code to display.
