LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) -- A man who was convicted in the 1997 rape of a University of Kansas student will go on trial again next January.

Forty-year-old Robert Grey originally was sentenced in 2009 to 26 years in prison for rape. Prosecutors said he kidnapped a 20-year-old woman at gunpoint from a campus parking lot, took her to a secluded area and raped her.

The Kansas Court of Appeals last year awarded Grey a new trial, finding that prosecutor Amy McGowan did not disclose some evidence to the defense.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports (http://bit.ly/15fM8ku ) McGowan was assigned to other duties earlier this year after the Kansas Supreme Court found she committed errors in several trials from 2007 to 2009.

A Douglas County judge last week scheduled Grey's new trial for Jan. 13.
