URBANA -- A trial date has been set for a man accused of murder. 20-year old Treshaun Jake is charged with killing Desirae Austin on July 4, 2012.

In August, Jake's co-defendant, Anthony Meads, 21, was sentenced to 50-years in prison. In May, a jury convicted Meads for taking part in mob action between two gangs in which Austin was killed by a bullet intended for someone else. Meads is not believed to have fired the fatal shot.

Jake's trial date is set for October 28.
