KINGMAN, Ariz. (AP) - The father of a man convicted of second-degree murder is heading to trial on charges that he staged the scene to make it look like a hit-and-run accident.

The Kingman Daily Miner reports (https://bit.ly/1MeNQgd) 24-year-old Jade Tracy is serving a 20-year prison sentence for nearly beating Michael Clayton Clark to death in 2012 and then leaving him in a Bullhead City street.

Clark was hit by at least one vehicle before he was discovered. He later died at the hospital.

Police say 54-year-old Todd Sterling Tracy helped his son cover up the beating. He’s being tried July 28 on aggravated assault charges and for hindering prosecution.

Four people have taken plea deals on charges related to Clark’s death.

Tracy is the last to stand trial. It’s unclear whether he has a lawyer.
