Trial date set for man accused of killing teen over loud music
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The man charged with murdering a teen over loud music was back in court Thursday morning. Michael Dunn is charged with first degree murder in the death of Jordan Davis.
In court, the judge set Dunn's trial for February 3 at the Duval County Courthouse. Davis' parents were once again in the courtroom when the date was set. They told Action News they will be there for every hearing leading up to the trial of the man accused of killing their son.
And they said now that a date is set, they finally feel like they're getting closer to justice.
"Yeah that felt great were glad to have the third of February and that's the date we are going to put on our calendars we are looking forward to that and we thank judge Healey for setting that date today," Ron Davis said.
From there, Jordan's parents and their attorney John Phillips headed to Tallahassee. They are testifying before a state House of Representatives subcommittee about the stand your ground law.
Action News is headed to Tallahassee with the Davis family. We will have a full recap of the hearing Thursday on Action News at 5 p.m.
