Mark Norwood’s trial date set in 1988 murder case

AUSTIN (KXAN) — A new trial date is now set for convicted killer Mark Norwood. The trial in Travis County will begin Feb. 9.

Norwood is accused of beating Debra Baker to death in her Austin home in 1988.

Last year, he was convicted for the 1986 murder of Christine Morton in Williamson County. Morton’s husband Michael spent 25 years in prison for that murder until DNA evidence proved he was not the killer.
