McCray Murder Trial Set for October

A Houston County man is scheduled to stand trial for capital murder later this fall.

Thirty-seven-year-old Lavon McCray of Ashford was back in a Dothan courtroom Monday.

He's charged with killing 27-year-old Brandy Bachelder.

The Dothan woman's body was found in her mobile home in August of last year.

She had been stabbed at least once and investigators say she had apparently been dead a couple of days.

They also say McCray admitted forcing his way into the woman's home.

The trial is set for October 16.

McCray is being held without bond in the Houston County Jail.
