Rape trial postponed for former B.G. man

OTTAWA, Ohio — The trial for a former Bowling Green man, which was scheduled to begin in Putnam County Common Pleas Court yesterday, has been postponed until Sept. 15.

Ricky Bixler, 44, faces charges of rape, aggravated burglary, and aggravated robbery in Putnam County. He was ar|raigned May 30 on those charges.

Ohio authorities, using DNA, say they have linked Bixler to the 1992 rape of a Leipsic, Ohio woman. Bixler is serving a 23-year sentence in Kansas for the aggravated kidnapping and rape of a church worker there.
