PERU, Ind. - A northern Indiana judge has set a February trial date for a surgeon accused of plotting to murder his ex-wife and make it look like a suicide.
Forty-eight-year-old Gregory Konrath is being held on a $25,000 at the Miami County Jail on one count of attempted murder.
A judge last week set a Feb. 2, 2015, trial date for Konrath, who was arrested after police say recordings secretly made by his live-in girlfriend revealed he had plotted to shoot his ex-wife.
The Kokomo Tribune reports deputies said the recordings indicate Konrath had obtained a handgun and had begun practicing shooting it at a firing range while wearing gloves to keep his fingerprints off of it.
Konrath is an orthopedic surgeon at Dukes Memorial Hospital in Peru.
