BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - A judge has set a March 21 trial date for the alleged triggerman in the September 2006 slaying of an Olive Garden employee outside the Baton Rouge restaurant.
State District Judge Don Johnson set the trial date on Thursday. 32-year-old Tracy Young of Baton Rouge is accused of fatally shooting 21-year-old Arron Arnold and wounding fellow worker Dionne Grayson while Arnold helped Grayson put gasoline in her car behind the restaurant on Sept. 8, 2006.
Grayson identified Young as the shooter. Young's alleged accomplice, 25-year-old Sanchez Brumfield, was convicted and sentenced to death in May 2008.
Prosecutors also intend to seek the death penalty against Young if he is convicted of first-degree murder.
