No deal on N.H. hepatitis C trial date

CONCORD, N.H. — Prosecutors and defense lawyers ­remain at odds over a trial date for a former Exeter Hospital technician accused of stealing drugs and infecting patients with hepatitis C, making it likely that a judge will hold a hearing to settle the matter.

David Kwiatkowski, who has been in jail since his arrest in July, is scheduled to go on trial Oct. 1, but his lawyers asked last week that the trial be ­delayed at least six months, given the complexity of the case. After prosecutors said they would agree to a three-month delay at most, a judge told both sides to discuss the matter and get back to him by Monday.
