SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - The case against a former Sacramento police officer accused of repeatedly sexually assaulting an elderly woman while off duty is headed to trial.

The Sacramento Bee reports Gary Dale Baker will be arraigned Oct. 17.

Superior Court Judge Patrick Marlette ordered the trial following a preliminary hearing that took eight court days.

The 50-year-old Baker was arrested in December on suspicion of rape, forcible oral copulation and other charges in the assault of the stroke-impaired woman in her 70s.

Baker also faces burglary-related charges that could bring him a life term if he is convicted.

Detectives recognized the suspect as Baker after reviewing footage from a surveillance camera the alleged victim's family installed after she told them of the assault.
