MARION, Ala. (AP)- A judge has postponed the trial of a former Alabama state trooper charged with murder in the 1965 shooting of a black man at a civil rights protest in Marion.
The trial for James Bonard Fowler had been scheduled to start Oct. 20 in Marion, but Circuit Judge Tommy Jones postponed it because the district attorney appealed one of the judge's rulings.
The circuit clerk's office said Tuesday a new trial date has not been set.
Fowler is accused of shooting Jimmie Lee Jackson in February 1965 when a civil rights march turned violent.
Jackson died later at a Selma hospital. Fowler says it was self-defense.
