A second trial is scheduled to begin early next year for an Alliance man charged with murdering a teenager who hasn’t been seen in thirteen years.

Mahoning County Common Pleas Judge Maureen Sweeney has set a January 17 trial date for 52-year-old Robert Moore who was already found “not guilty” of aggravated murder in connection with the disappearance of Glenna Jean White.

Judge Sweeney declared a mistrial in June when the jury hearing the case could not reach a unanimous verdict on a murder charge.

The case dates to 2009 when police say the Alliance teen went missing after visiting Moore’s home.

Police said White, then 16 years old, was there to meet a teenage girlfriend of hers, but then left with Moore that night and was never seen again.

Since White has never been found, prosecutors need to convince a jury that White was murdered and that Moore is the person who committed the crime.

Moore, who remains held in the Mahoning County jail, is scheduled to appear for a pretrial on October 25, and a final pretrial on January 11.
