A Stanislaus County Superior Court judge has rescheduled a trial to start Sept. 17 for a man charged with murder in the shooting death of his girlfriend nearly two years ago.
Robert Vanderheiden is accused of shooting to death 26-year-old Teresa Rangel on March 21, 2011. Vanderheiden also has been charged with inflicting corporal injury on a spouse.
Vanderheiden and Rangel lived with his grandparents at a rural home on Warner Road, about a mile west of Highway 99 just southwest of Keyes. Stanislaus County sheriff's officials have said the couple had a relationship for about six to nine months.
