A tentative trial date has been set for the Port Jefferson woman accused of shoving a beloved Broadway vocal coach to her death.
Lauren Pazienza could be heading to trial as soon as Oct. 6.
Pazienza is facing charges of first-degree manslaughter and second-degree assault.
As News 12 has reported, the 26-year-old allegedly pushed Barbara Gustern in New York City in March.
The 87-year-old hit her head and died five days later.
Pazienza rejected a plea deal last month and pleaded not guilt.
