Baker Murder Trial

A former death row inmate from Dothan with a new lease on life is still scheduled to stand trial again next month but that could change.

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 ordered a new trial on the grounds that jurors should not have been allowed to hear evidence of previous domestic violence cases involving Baker and his wife.

The case is set for trial May 15.

Defense attorneys have asked for a delay because of a scheduling conflict involving an expert witness.

Judge Lawson Little will rule on the motion at a later date.
