Michael McCoy Trial Update

BAY COUNTY-- A local judge has set a tentative trial date Wednesday for a Bay County man charged with murder.

Circuit Judge James Fensom set November 17 for jury selection to begin in the second degree murder trial of 43 year old Michael Joe McCoy.

McCoy is accused of shooting and killing 46 year old David Walker in February, after finding out Walker was having an affair with his wife, 37 year old Susan McCoy.

Walker was staying with the McCoys at their home on Rhonda Road in Bayou George.

Investigators say McCoy threatened to kill himself when he found out about the affair, but his wife talked him out of it.

Then he and Walker then got into an argument in the front yard, and McCoy killed Walker.

Susan McCoy was also shot and is in the hospital.

McCoy is claiming self defense.
