BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Trial for a man accused of a murder that happened 30 years ago has been rescheduled.

WAFB-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1K4vKKN ) Ronald Dunnagan is accused of murdering Gary Kergan on Nov. 19, 1984. Dunnagan was arrested in September and is being held in the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on a $150,000 bond.

Officials say Dunnagan’s trial was supposed to begin Monday but was rescheduled due to a scheduling conflict with a witness. The trial is now set to begin on Sept. 8 before state District Judge Mike Erwin.

Leila Mulla, who admitted participating in Kergan’s murder allegedly with Dunnagan, was sentenced May 15, 2014, to 30 years for her role in the crime.
