Trial set for April in synthetic drug death

ANOKA, Minn. (AP) — A trial date has been set for the 21-year-old man accused of supplying a synthetic drug that killed a man at a Blaine party.

Documents say Robinson took the synthetic drug at the party last March and died hours later. Ten others also took the drug and became ill.

Preliminary autopsy results said Robinson died of cardiac arrest attributed to drug toxicity.
