Share/Save/Bookmark

HOT SPRINGS, Arkansas — A judge has rescheduled the first-degree murder trial for a man accused of killing a Hot Springs Village police dispatcher.

The trial for Kevin Duck was set to begin Tuesday, but a judge in Garland County has delayed the trial until November at the request of prosecutors. Duck is accused in the 2011 death of his girlfriend, Dawna Natzke, who worked as a police dispatcher and was a mother of three.

Authorities say Natzke was last seen with Duck at a Christmas party, and searchers found her body days later. An autopsy says Natzke died from blunt force trauma and drowning.

Duck has a pretrial hearing set for Nov. 3, with a four-day trial set to begin Nov. 4.
