GRETNA, LA (WVUE) - Ronald Gasser, the man accused of shooting and killing former NFL player Joe McKnight will stand trial August 7.
A final motions hearing is scheduled for July 14 and the prosecution has a deadline of June 23 to hand over all evidence to the defense team.
Last month, a Jefferson Parish judge allowed a 2006 road rage incident involving Gasser to be introduced into evidence.
Gasser is charged with second-degree murder and prosecutors say he was the aggressor in both cases.
Gasser's attorney says McKnight was responsible for escalating the situation on Behrman Highway in Terrytown last December.
