Alleged killer to go on trial in September

The trial of a man accused of killing his ex-wife in Ridgefield is scheduled to begin in September.
David Harris, 57, of Croton-on-Hudson, N.Y., will go on trial for killing Simone Harris at her home on Danbury Road in Ridgefield April 11, 2003.

The 57-year-old woman was strangled and suffered blows to the head. She was found dead in her kitchen. Prosecutors say Harris, a former computer programmer who remarried, killed his ex-wife because he didn't want to pay child support and alimony. Shortly before she was killed, a Westchester County Court judge ruled in her favor in the alimony case.
