DALTON, Ga. (AP) - An April 27 trial date has been set for the woman accused of killing a northwest Georgia convenience store clerk.

Skyy Raven Marie Mims — a 21-year-old aspiring model, dancer and rapper from Detroit — faces a murder charge in the killing of 37-year-old Dahyabhai Chaudhari in Whitfield County in March 2014.

Customers say the clerk was found in a pool of blood, his mouth and eyes duct-taped shut. Authorities say Mims fled the store with lottery tickets and cash.

The Daily Citizen of Dalton reports (https://bit.ly/1L14SyP) that Superior Court Judge Jack Partain on Wednesday declared Mims competent for trial.

The Dalton newspaper reports that defense attorney Carla Marable insisted at a previous court hearing that Mims is innocent, and that police arrested her in a case of mistaken identity.
