      Trial postponed for man accused of killing a Gladstone couple

      The trial date for the fatal crash that occurred in Gladstone last spring has been postponed again.

      Harley Durocher, 25, accused of killing an Escanaba couple, was scheduled to appear in court next week. According to Delta County Circuit Court officials, the trial has been pushed to the week of April 21.

      Durocher was driving a semi truck for LJ Roberto Logging when he allegedly ran a red light and supposedly killed Thomas and Barbra Swift, both 73, of Escanaba. Also injured in the accident was Gladstone resident Joyce Scheriff.

      Durocher is charged with two counts on the following: operating with a suspended license causing death, reckless driving causing death, operating with the presence of a controlled substance causing death.

      Durocher was not injured in the crash.
