ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — A judge has scheduled a May 19 trial for one of two suspects in the fatal shooting of a University of Michigan medical student during a break-in at his Ann Arbor fraternity house.

Washtenaw County Judge Archie Brown on Wednesday set the date for 20-year-old Joei Jordan. He’s charged with an open count of murder and home invasion.

Jordan and 21-year-old Shaquille Jones were arrested in November in their native South Carolina. A pretrial hearing for Jones is scheduled next week.

Jones faces the same charges.

Twenty-five-year-old Paul DeWolf was found dead July 24, 2013, at an off-campus medical fraternity. A video game system was taken and later sold for $80.
