The Jefferson City teenager accused in the deadly shooting of a correctional officer could head to trial in the spring.
A three-day trial for Jahuan Whirley is scheduled to start the morning of May 4.
The prosecutor’s office charged Whirley in December with second-degree murder, first-degree assault, two counts of first-degree robbery, two counts of armed criminal action and unlawful use of a weapon.
Police said Whirley shot and killed 33-year-old Justin Kammerich at an apartment complex off of West Atchison Street in Jefferson City on Dec. 12.
A second 20-year-old victim survived the shooting.
Prosecutors charged Whirley, who was 16-years-old at the time of the shooting, as an adult in January.
He could appear at a court hearing on Jan. 7.
