New trial date set for New Hartford man accused of beating girlfriend to death in her dorm room
Rochester (WSYR-TV/WROC-TV) – A new trial date has been set for the man accused of beating his girlfriend to death in her SUNY Brockport dorm room.
The trial for Clayton Whittemore was initially set to begin on Sept. 30, but it has been adjourned until Nov. 4.

Both Kogut and Whittemore are from New Hartford.
Whittemore was attending Utica College at the time of the incident.
