IONIA (WKZO) -- Convicted murderer Michael Elliot will go to trial on kidnapping and carjacking charges stemming from his escape from the state prison in Ionia on Super Bowl Sunday.

Elliot waived a probable cause hearing this week in Ionia County District Court. He is accused of carjacking a woman in Ionia and driving her to Middlebury, Indiana, where she escaped at a gas station.

Elliot has said he broke out of prison because he wants a new trial on murder charges, and one co-defendant has said Elliot wasn't involved in the deaths of four people in Gladwin in 1993.
