Mouseketeer death trial postponed, man released from jail

MEDFORD, Ore. (AP) — A man charged with manslaughter in the death of a former child actor who lived southern Oregon has been released from jail, and his trial won’t start until at least December. The Mail Tribune reports 37-year-old Daniel Burda was ordered released from the Jackson County Jail while the Jackson County District Attorney’s office appeals a judge’s ruling this week that dramatically restricts the evidence they’ll be able to present to a jury. Burda faces second-degree manslaughter, abuse of a corpse and other charges in the death of 76-year-old Dennis Day, who was a cast member on Walt Disney’s “Mickey Mouse Club” television series in the 1950s.
