MADISONVILLE-A man accused of killing
his girlfriend in August 2012 was set to go to trial last week, but
his court date was reset after defense attorney Jeannie Wiggins said
she needed more time to work on the case.
Ray Charles White, 54, accused in the
death of Alonda White after allegedly shooting her during an
argument, has been given a new trial date of Jan. 28, 2014, with any
motions scheduled to be heard Jan. 27.
White was originally charged with
second-degree murder, but a grand jury upgraded that charge to
first-degree murder when it heard the case. The reason for the change
is unknown as grand jury proceedings are not open to the public.
White is also charged with unlawful possession of a weapon.
White was arrested after Monroe County
Sheriff's Detective Conway Mason went to a home on Old Highway 68
near Dead Man's Curve around 11:15 p.m. that night and found a
woman lying on the ground and bleeding from her head.
