A trial date has been set for a suspect in the death of an elderly Dothan man.
Michael Ray Jackson is charged with capital murder for the 2004 beating and strangulation death of 64-year-old Dewey Walker.
The victim's body was found in his home on shields court.
He had been dead nearly a week.
Police say Jackson and three others allegedly wanted to steal Walker's van and the sound system inside.
Defense attorneys tried to suppress a taped statement Jackson gave to police.
But Judge Larry Anderson ruled jurors will be allowed to hear it.
Jackson's trial is scheduled to begin February 12.
