ST. JOHNSBURY, Vt. (AP) - A change of plea hearing is scheduled for a Vermont man charged with stabbing his wife to death in the parking lot of a St. Johnsbury mall.

Benjamin Berwick, 51, of Lyndon, had been scheduled to go on trial July 9.

Berwick has been charged with second-degree murder in the stabbing death of his 45-year-old estranged wife Anna Berwick in the parking lot of the Green Mountain Mall on Dec. 28, 2009.

Deputy State's Attorney Kirk Williams tells the Caledonian Record the details of the agreement "have not been reduced to writing."

After his estranged wife was killed, Benjamin Berwick was found nearby suffering from an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound.

He's being held at the Newport prison.
