A trial date has been set for a Des Moines man who escaped from a work release facility last month.
Orlando Rodriguez faces felony escape charges after failing to return to the Fort Des Moines facility in November. Authorities found Rodriguez the next day at a home in Des Moines.
His trial is scheduled to begin in February.
Rodriguez was convicted in the 2009 hit and run death of Bruce Mundy. He served four years of his 10 year sentence before he entered the work release program.
