EASTON -- A July 29 trial date has been set for Michael Eugene Fisher, the teen-ager accused of killing his mother, stepfather and brother, but a request for a change of venue could be made because of pre-trial publicity, defense attorney Michael O'Connor, said.

Michael Fisher, 16, has pleaded not guilty to three first-degree murder counts and has requested a jury trial. He has been charged as an adult in connection with the Feb. 19 slayings of Chris Fisher, 27, Susan Fisher, 41, and David Fisher, 14, at their home here.

State schools Superintendent Nancy S. Grasmick recently received the Maryland Bar Association's fourth annual award for Professional Legal Excellence in The Advancement of Public Understanding of the Law.

The bar credited her with promoting school safety and discipline, and supporting programs that teach children about the law, citizenship and proper behavior.
