TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - A January trial has been scheduled for a 36-year-old man accused of fatally shooting another man last year at a home outside Topeka.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1fd5C62 ) that Shawnee County District Court judge on Monday set a Jan. 11 trial date for Jonathan Emil Maldonado-Vasquez. He faces several charges, including felony first-degree murder, in the November 2014 shooting death of 29-year-old Dustin C. McKinney.

Coroner’s officials said McKinney was shot at least eight times.

The trial date was set after Judge David B. Debenham agreed to a request from defense attorney Heather Nelson for additional time in the case so a DNA expert could go over findings from the Kansas Bureau of Investigation.
