A trial date is set for former Monroe City Engineer Sinyale Morrison.

Her trial will take place on February 3, 2014.

Morrison is charged with public payroll fraud. 

That charge stems from a 2011 audit that suggests Morrison may have violated state law when she hired Ricardo Nance.

During a hearing Thursday morning, the District Attorney's office turned over documents requested by the defense, including the specific crimes Morrison is accused of committing.

"We're just vigorously defending this case. We fell like Ms. Morrison has been wrongly accused, falsely accused and we're very much looking forward to our day in court." said defense attorney Charles Kincade.

Another hearing is set for December 12.

Kincade says they'll likely present several motions, including a motion to dismiss the case.
