Newcastle eye surgeon Michael Mockovak — who pleaded not guilty to two counts of criminal solicitation to commit first-degree murder — will go to trial Jan. 10, 2011.

King County prosecutors said in charging papers that Mockovak, a surgeon for Clearly Lasik in Renton, sought to have his business partner, Joseph King, and former Clearly Lasik President Brad Klock killed.

After his arrest, Mockovak paid his $2 million bail. Although he remains out of prison while he awaits trial, he is prohibited from contacting King, Klock and their families.

The state Department of Health also suspended Mockovak’s medical license.
