Hearing scheduled for Auburn freshman murder case

AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - A hearing has been scheduled for February in the case of a man accused of killing an Auburn University freshman in March 2008.

Lee County Circuit Court Judge Jacob A. Walker III said Tuesday the hearing will focus on motions to suppress evidence and change the venue for the trial of 25-year-old Courtney L. Lockhart of Smiths Station. Lockhart is charged with capital murder during a kidnapping, capital murder during an attempted rape, and capital murder during a robbery for the death of Lauren Burk.

He has pleaded not guilty and remains at the Lee County jail without bond. The 18-year-old Burk, who is from Marietta, Ga., was killed on March 4, 2008.
