TUCSON, Ariz. — A trial date has been set for early next year for a former University of Arizona assistant track and field coach accused of stalking and assaulting a student-athlete.

Pima County Superior Court records show Craig Carter is scheduled for a 10-day jury trial beginning March 27.

Carter has been charged with aggravated assault, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, stalking with fear of death and disrupting an educational institution.

The felony charges stem from an April 2015 incident.
