SAUK RAPIDS, MN (KNSI) - A trial date has been set for a woman charged with killing her ex-husband in Sauk Rapids last year.

Angelina O'Mara will go on trial November 5th for the shooting death of James O'Mara. He was found dead in his apartment last November 1st with a gunshot wound to the head. Angelina O'Mara is charged with first and second-degree murder.

O'Mara is also charged with first-degree murder in Wisconsin for the murder of her boyfriend--Michael Pies--at a hotel in Ashland. He too had been shot in the head.

O'Mara requested a change of venue in her Benton County trial, saying pre-trial media coverage would prevent her from getting a fair hearing, but a judge denied that motion.
