(AP) — A trial date has been set early next year for a former Fort Worth police officer charged with murder after shooting a Black woman through a back window of her home while responding to a call about an open front door in 2019.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports Tarrant County judge on Tuesday scheduled Aaron Dean’s trial in the fatal shooting of 28-year-old Atatiana Jefferson for Jan. 10.

Jury selection is set to begin six days earlier, although Judge David Hagerman indicated he’s expecting a Dean’s lawyers to seek a change of venue. Such a motion could further delay the case.
