Trial has been set for September 3 for a convicted sex offender accused in the cold case murder of a Cleveland teen.

Hernandez Warren is facing the death penalty for the 1984 kidnapping, rape and murder of 14-year-old Gloria Pointer.

DNA evidence linked Warren to the case, who had previously served 15 years in prison for a felonious assault and rape.

Gloria Pointer disappeared while walking to school on December 6, 1984. The child left her home on East 114th Street in Cleveland around 7 a.m. She planned to meet a classmate and continue on to Harry E. Davis School, where Gloria was to get an award for perfect attendance.

She never reached her friend's home. Her body was discovered around 10:30 that morning at the base of a fire escape behind an apartment building on Orville Avenue.

Warren remains jailed without bond.
