TUCSON, Ariz. — A trial date has been set for the man charged with killing Genna Ayup in 2012.

On Wednesday, a Superior Court Judge set the trial for Ronald Corbin Junior for November 12, 2019.

He is scheduled to change his plea in November.

The Pima County Attorney's Office re-opened the case last year.

A grand jury indicted Corbin on manslaughter charges.

Police say Corbin accidentally shot Ayup, while he was cleaning his gun.
