Sale Murder Trial Set

A trial date has been set for a Houston County man charged with capital murder in the death of his wife.

49-year-old Michael Sale was originally booked for domestic violence last year after his wife was brought to a hospital in critical condition.

Investigators said 48-year-old Lynn Sale had been tied up so tightly for so long that she
developed gangrene.

She died two weeks later.

A grand jury indicted Sale for kidnapping and capital murder because the woman had apparently been held against her will for several weeks.

Judge Lawson Little has set a February 6th trial date in the case.
