Oscar Doster is charged with capital murder. He escaped from the Covington County Jail with three other inmates in November of 2002.
Paul Lemaster was shot to death in his trailer near Gantt the next day.
Lemaster's pick-up truck was also stolen. Doster was later re-captured. His trial is scheduled to begin April 24 at the Covington County Courthouse in Andalusia.
Doster escaped from the Covington County Jail again last year and he became a suspect in another murder case.
When the accused killer was apprehended near Bakersfield, California, he was riding a four-wheeler owned by a Texas man who had been shot to death a few days earlier.
No charges have been filed in that case, but the investigation is continuing.
