Jury trial planned for Bray


Staff Writer

IRON MOUNTAIN – A five-day jury trial has been scheduled for a Norway man accused of stabbing a law enforcement officer.

Andrew Bray, 75, will go to trial from June 9 through 13.

Bray was initially scheduled for a trial from Jan. 13 through 17, but the proceedings were postponed so his new attorney could have time to hire an expert witness.

If Bray is convicted on his felony assault with intent to commit murder charge, he could spend up to life in prison.

The charge stems from a Feb. 10, 2013 incident in Breitung Township.

According to the criminal complaint in the case, Bray allegedly stabbed Lt. Derek Dixon of the Dickinson County Sheriff’s Department in the upper back with a four-inch blade.

The incident occurred at the annual Pine Mountain Continental Cup International Ski Jumping Competition at Pine Mountain Resort.

Dixon was treated at the scene for his injury and released.
