TEXARKANA, Ark. (AP) — An August trial date is set for a man charged with capital murder in the fatal shooting of another man in Texarkana.
An August 24 trial date is set for Jucquian Martez Tyson, 23, while a pretrial hearing is scheduled the same day for co-defendant Keanu White, 23, according to Miller County court records.
