HAUPPAUGE - Officials say a Hauppauge man accused of killing his stepfather with a Samurai sword could get a new trial date today.

Zachary Gibian is set to return to court in Riverhead later this morning.

Gibian was convicted of nearly beheading Scott Nager in 2005.

The Court of Appeals ruled last year that legal errors were made during Gibian's trial.

A judge could announce a date for Gibian's re-trial today.
