May 28 set as tentative trial date in Trevino murder case


Jeffrey Trevino, the husband of Kira Trevino, is tentatively set to go to trial May 28 in the suspected death of the missing Minnesota woman, the Pioneer Press reports.

A pre-trial date of May 15 was also set.

Jeffrey Trevino, 39, pleaded not guilty to second degree murder charges in Ramsey County District Court March 29. He is being held in the Ramsey County Jail on $1 million bail.

Kira Trevino, 30, went missing since Feb. 21 and presumed dead after investigators found blood in her car and the Trevino's St. Paul home.

Authorities, as well as family, friends and volunteers have been searching ever since. Most recently, the search has focused on Keller Lake in Maplewood, where new evidence was found.

An amended criminal complaint said the evidence included a plastic bag containing "a bloody pillow, pillow case, sports bra, shirt and sponge," and the that DNA analysis shows the blood is Kira Trevino's.

The most recent development in the case was reported Thursday, when investigators searching for new evidence in the case asked for access to Jeffrey Trevino's Facebook page.

According to the Pioneer Press, friends told police that Jeffery Trevino had included "NWNP" in Facebook communications. A friend reportedly told investigators that the NWNP acronym stands for "no witnesses, no proof."
