December trial now planned for suspect in 2011 death that followed argument over loud stereo


VICKSBURG, Mississippi — The trial of a Vicksburg man charged with a fatal shooting following an argument over a loud car stereo has been delayed.

Twenty-three-year-old Rondell Galvin will stand trial in December. He is charged with murder in the shooting death of 20-year-old William Jones Jr.

The Vicksburg Post reports ( ) that Galvin had been scheduled to go to trial last week before Circuit Judge Isadore Patrick. However, Patrick set the trial for December after the defense asked for a delay.

If convicted, Galvin could be sentenced to life in prison.

Since Nov. 9, 2012, Galvin has been free on $250,000 bail.

Jones was shot in the front yard of his home about 2:15 a.m. on July 15, 2011.
