WEST POINT, Miss. (WTVA) – A new court date has now been set for three men in a Clay County murder trial.

Judge Jim Kitchens set a March 5 date for 22-year-old Raheem Johnson, 23-year-old Case Watkins and 29-year-old Roderick Johnson, reports the Daily Times Leader.

The three were indicted for the May 15, 2015, murder of 38-year-old James White.

Raheem Johnson was scheduled for trial last Tuesday, but the winter weather caused a delay.

Now, all three will go to trial the same day.
