The trial for two Lower Valley men charged with a fatal shooting outside a Pasco club has been set for June 27.
Santos Flores-Alcaide and his nephew, Enrique Alcaide, are being tried together in Franklin County Superior Court.
Their trial was supposed to be going on right now, but previously was delayed because of scheduling conflicts.
On Tuesday, prosecutors and attorneys for the two men agreed on the late June date.
However, there’s expected to be a few lengthy recesses during the three-week trial because of the July Fourth holiday and an already planned trip by Judge Robert Swisher.
The uncle and nephew are charged with one count each of first-degree murder.
Flores-Alcaide, 28, also faces felony charges of first-degree assault and possession of a stolen gun.
His lawyer, Shelley Ajax, has said she will argue that Flores-Alcaide believed his nephew was in danger and was defending him when he shot Eduardo Angon Del Villar on Aug. 30.
Alcaide and Angon Del Villar reportedly got into a fistfight outside La Tropicana dance club on West Columbia Street.
At some point, Alcaide allegedly told his uncle to get a pistol from their truck, and Flores-Alcaide returned to fire several shots at close range at the 19-year-old Angon Del Villar.
Flores-Alcaide then turned the gun on a witness who was trying to help the victim, court documents said.
The suspects were arrested a short time later by Pasco police as they were driving on Lewis Street, documents said.
In December, Judge Swisher approved a prosecution motion to consolidate the cases for trial.
