A trial date has been set for the Champaign man accused of raping and murdering a 15-year-old girl more than 30 years ago.

63-year-old Michael Jones was arrested in September of 2015 for the murder of Kristy Wesselman.

Her body was found murdered in a wooded area near her home in Glen Ellyn in 1985.

The case went cold years ago until a DNA sample linked Jones to her death.

His trial has been set for January 23.

He's currently being held in the DuPage County Jail without bond.
