ENGLISH — A Huntingburg dentist and his wife accused of criminal confinement and neglect in October 2017, are now slated to face trial in November.

The case involving Alan P. Friz, 59, and his wife, Aimee Friz, 38, both of 5275 W. CR 700 S., Huntingburg, is being heard in Crawford Circuit Court after a change of venue was granted a year ago.

During a telephonic conference Monday, parties arrived at Nov. 18 for the date of the jury trial in Crawford County, with a final pretrial conference slated for Oct. 18. A hearing on any pending motions in the case will take place June 4 in Dubois Circuit Court.

The couple was arrested in 2017 and charged with 11 felony counts of neglect and 11 felony counts of criminal confinement after authorities allegedly located a closet area of a bedroom in their home that had been converted into a lockable cage for a female juvenile. Alan Friz was also charged with four felony counts of sexual misconduct with a minor after allegations of improper touching.
