The man accused of killing former NFL player and local prep standout Joe McKnight is due in court Thursday.

Ronald Gasser is accused of shooting McKnight in a December road rage incident in Terrytown.

According to our partners at NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune, prosecutors want to introduce into evidence a 2006 road rage incident involving Gasser.

Gasser was accused of punching a driver at the same Westbank intersection where he shot McKnight.

The charge was later dismissed.
