JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - A Florida man charged with first-degree murder in the death of a teenager following an argument over loud music coming from the teen's car is scheduled to go on trial Sept. 23.
The Florida Times-Unionreports that a Duval County judge set the trial date for 46-year-old Michael David Dunn during a hearing Tuesday. State Attorney Angela Corey asked for the week of Aug. 12, while Dunn's attorney said he would need at least six months to prepare.
Officials say Dunn parked at a Jacksonville gas station in November next to the vehicle where 17-year-old Jordan Davis was sitting with three other teens. Dunn complained about the loud music, and they started arguing. Dunn told police he thought he saw a gun and fired into the vehicle. Davis was fatally wounded.
