SOUTH BEND, Ind. A new trial date has been set for a man accused of murder.

Anthony Jefferson, 43, reportedly shot Jason Reid and Tyreece Walker in September 2013.

Reid died from the shooting.

Jefferson allegedly forced a woman to withdraw money from an ATM and then robbed a 7-Eleven in Mishawaka, days before the shooting.

He then fled to his stepmother's house in Rockford, Illinois and had a stand-off with police, before being arrested.

Jefferson is facing murder, confinement and robbery charges.

His trial was rescheduled earlier this week because of the weather.

On Wednesday, in court, a new trial date was scheduled for February 10.
