OGDEN, Utah (AP) - A Riverdale man accused in a fatal shooting on a hiking trail last year will go to trial later this month.

The Standard-Examiner of Ogden reports (http://bit.ly/2cTqXDj) that attorneys confirmed this week that trial proceedings for Luciano Silva are to begin Oct. 24.

The 21-year-old faces one count of murder, one count of possession of a dangerous weapon and two counts of obstructing justice.

Police say Silva shot 25-year-old Horacio Mendez Sanchez in September 2015.

Sanchez’s body was found along Riverdale Parkway Trail.

Silva told investigators he acted in self-defense. But a witness says Silva told him they had been arguing about music before the shooting.

Silva is being held in Weber County Jail without bail.
