VICKSBURG, Mississippi — The trial of a Vicksburg man charged with a fatal shooting following an argument over a loud car stereo has been delayed.
Twenty-three-year-old Rondell Galvin will stand trial in December. He is charged with murder in the shooting death of 20-year-old William Jones Jr.
The Vicksburg Post reports (http://bit.ly/1tDgTBk ) that Galvin had been scheduled to go to trial last week before Circuit Judge Isadore Patrick. However, Patrick set the trial for December after the defense asked for a delay.
If convicted, Galvin could be sentenced to life in prison.
Since Nov. 9, 2012, Galvin has been free on $250,000 bail.
Jones was shot in the front yard of his home about 2:15 a.m. on July 15, 2011.
