NEWPORT, KY (FOX19) -

A man is expected in court Wednesday in connection to the February murder of a Southgate resident.

The body of David Sellers, 66, was found at an apartment complex on Fox Chase Drive on February 27, 2013. The Campbell County Coroner's Office determined Sellers died due to a blunt force trauma.

In May, 39-year-old Dean Shepard was formally charged in the murder. He was already being held in jail at the time on charges of theft over $500 and fraudulent use of a credit card.

Shepard was scheduled to appear in a Campbell County courtroom Wednesday morning for a status hearing on the case.
