May trial set in Bozeman shooting case
Trial is scheduled to start on May 28 for a 25-year-old Bozeman man charged with killing one man and injuring another during a shooting outside a house party.
Cody Christopher Little is charged with deliberate homicide for the Sept. 20 shooting that fatally injured Larry "LJ" Clayton. He died the next day at a Seattle hospital.
Little also faces two counts of attempted deliberate homicide. Prosecutors allege Little fired a shot that hit James Armstrong in the leg and later pointed a shotgun at Rielley Ray's face and pulled the trigger, but the gun didn't fire.
Little has said the shooting was in self-defense. He has been jailed on $1.25 million bail since his arrest.
The trial before District Judge Holly Brown is scheduled to take eight days.
