GEORGETOWN, Del. (AP) — Opening statements are set in the first trial of a former college baseball player accused of sexually assaulting six women.

Prosecution and defense attorneys were scheduled to make opening remarks in the trial of Clay Conaway on Monday following the completion of jury selection.

Conaway is a former University of Delaware baseball player. He is accused of raping the six women between September 2013 and July 2018.

The judge in July granted a defense motion to hold separate trials regarding each of Conaway's accusers.

The judge said a key issue in each case is whether the victim consented to sexual intercourse, and that when consent is a core issue, evidence of other sexual offenses is generally not admissible.
