The trial date set for the Galt man suspected of killing a Sacramento County animal control officer last winter has been rescheduled for September.
It was originally set to start today.
Joseph Corey, who remains in a Sacramento jail on murder charges, is suspected of shooting Roy Marcum when he arrived at Corey’s 1st Street home to retrieve pets believed abandoned in an eviction procedure.
Marcum, who lived in Elk Grove and frequently worked in Galt, was pronounced dead at a nearby church. He was not wearing a bulletproof vest.
Corey was taken into custody after a 17-hour police standoff.
