Schoolgirl slaying suspect returns to court

Robert Bowman is accused of murdering a teen in 1967. / WNWO

Jury selection process has delayed the second trial of a former Toledo man charged with murdering a teen more than four decades ago.

Robert Bowman, 75, is accused of killing 14-year-old Eileen Adams in 1967 after the Sylvania Twp. schoolgirl got off a bus in West Toledo.

Bowman's first trial ended Aug. 23 in a mistrial when a jury of nine women and three men could not come up with a unanimous verdict. His second trial was supposed to begin on Tuesday morning, but all the new jurors had not been selected.

Bowman faces life in prison if convicted.
