Trial delayed for alleged Southern Union Comm. College shooter

Posted: Updated:
OPELIKA, AL (WTVM) -

The east Alabama man accused of murdering his mother-in-law while injuring his daughter, estranged wife and her grandmother did not go to trial Monday as expected.

Thomas May faces capital murder for allegedly shooting at his family while they were in a van in front of Southern Union Community College in Opelika in April 2011.

After the shooting, May returned to the scene after police had left, and spoke with members of the media until he was arrested by police.

The district attorney requested a continuance in the case when an expert witness suddenly became unavailable.

The judge granted that request.

May has pleaded not guilty by reason of mental disease or defect.

The case is tentatively set for March 2014.
