CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - A new trial has been scheduled for a man accused of setting a 1989 fire that killed a family of four in Keene, N.H.

David McLeod was charged in 2010 with four counts of second-degree murder in the deaths of Carl and Lori Hina, their infant daughter and Carl's 12-year-old daughter. His first trial ended in a mistrial earlier this month after jurors failed to reach a verdict.

Assistant Attorney General Janice Rundles said Tuesday that the new trial is set to start April 14.

McLeod was an early suspect but wasn't arrested for more than two decades. New Hampshire's cold case unit picked up McLeod in 2010 in West Sacramento, Calif., where he had moved and raised a family.

His lawyer did not immediately return a call Tuesday.
