CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - A judge has set a new trial date for a man accused of killing another man in Casper.

State District Judge Thomas Sullins set a four-day trial to start on Sept. 14 for Charlie Mapp, who has pleaded not guilty to one charge of attempted second-degree murder.

Mapp is accused of the fatal shooting of Richard Abeyta during an argument in August 2014.

KTWO radio in Casper reports (https://bit.ly/1fK1UBr ) that Mapp had originally pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter, and agreed to serve six to eight years in prison.

But Sullins rejected that plea deal.

If found guilty of attempted second-degree murder, Mapp could face between 20 years to life in prison.
