ST. CLAIRSVILLE, Ohio — Trial dates have been set for two eastern Ohio police chiefs accused of snooping on a surrogate mother for actress Sarah Jessica Parker and actor Matthew Broderick.

Martins Ferry Chief Barry Carpenter and Police Chief Chad Dojack from neighboring Bridgeport are accused in an alleged scheme to take things from the Martins Ferry home of the woman who recently carried twins girls for Parker and Broderick.

On Friday, Carpenter's trial was set for Nov. 16 and Dojack's for Jan. 12 in Belmont County Common Pleas Court.

A special prosecutor said the chiefs, who are charged with several felonies, tried to sell items to celebrity photographers. Carpenter and Dojack have pleaded not guilty.
