[Excerpts] If expert witnesses are available, a trial for a Millville police sergeant charged with murder could take place late this summer. A defense attorney for Millville police sergeant Robert Vanaman said Monday that he and First Assistant Prosecutor Ken Pagliughi need time to check with expert witnesses to make sure witnesses can be ready within the next four to six months for a potential trial. At a status conference Monday afternoon on Vanaman's case, Superior Court Judge Walter Marshall Jr. set a return date on the case for March 31, at which time it's expected a trial will be scheduled. Vanaman, 39, a 16-year veteran with the Millville Police Department, pleaded not guilty to charges of murder in November 2006 in connection with the shooting death of his 37-year-old wife, Barbara Vanaman... Robert Vanaman is free on $750,000 bail. He is currently suspended without pay... If expert witnesses are unavailable, Vanaman's trial could be delayed...
