A trial date has been set for a condemned killer from Dothan. He’s getting another day in court after his conviction was overturned on appeal.
Bobby Baker was 20 years old when he was arrested for a 1994 shooting spree that left two people wounded and his wife dead. Tracy Baker was kidnapped at gunpoint and shot to death with an assault rifle. Bobby Baker was found guilty of Capital Murder and sentenced to die.
However, the Alabama Supreme Court ruled last year that jurors should not have been allowed to hear evidence of previous domestic violence cases involving Baker and his wife.
District Attorney Doug Valeska says he will try to convict Baker again and send him back to death row. The case has been set for trial in November of this year.
