WASHINGTON — The first criminal trial involving muni market executives accused of bid-rigging is scheduled to begin next week in a federal court in New York City, unless they enter into plea agreements.

The trial, which will pit the U.S. Justice Department's antitrust division against Dominick Carollo, Peter Grimm and Steven Goldberg, former executives of subsidiaries of General Electric Co., is slated to start April 16 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York in Manhattan.
