A trial date has been set for a man charged with murder in a 2018 shooting.

William R. Daniels, now 61, is charged with second-degree murder in the slaying of 46-year-old Roman Latimer Lucero in October of 2018. The three-day trial is scheduled to begin in March of 2020 in District Court in Las Vegas.

Daniels had previously been deemed incompetent to stand trial in July after a doctor who evaluated Daniels provided the court with a report stating: “Mr. Daniels is unable to make independent life choices and decisions and rationally assist in his defense.”
