Floyd Hearing

A man serving life in prison for a burglary that is now a suspect in a 12-year-old murder case wants to be tried as a juvenile.

Thirty-two-year-old Christopher Floyd was charged in December with killing a store owner in Houston County.

Archie Crawford was gunned down and robbed in February of 1992.

Floyd was just 19 at the time and his attorneys have filed an application for youthful offender status.

District Attorney Doug Valeska says he's confident the application will be denied because of Floyd’s criminal history.

Judge Larry Anderson has set a hearing on the motion for April 8.
