  Lawyers for Nathaniel Kibby, who is  charged with kidnapping and sexually assaulting a Conway teenager over the course of nine months, will appear in court today to finalize a trial date.

The 34-year-old Gorham man faces more than 200 indictments in Carroll County where he allegedly kidnapped the then 14-year-old victim and in Coos County where he is suspected to have held and sexually abused her in his mobile home. 

But last month a judge consolidated the charges and assigned the case to Belknap County.

Monday’s hearing will focus primarily on picking dates for upcoming pre-trial conferences, jury selection as well as the trial itself, which is expected to begin sometime in April of next year.

Kibby, who has pleaded not guilty, won’t be attending. He is currently being held on one million dollars cash bail.
