Murder trial postponed
The murder trial of Michael Brown for the Sept. 21, 2005 shooting death of Thomas McKinney was rescheduled for March 30 before Criminal Court Judge James A. Yates. The trial was scheduled to start March 16.
The shooting occurred on the street in front of Mission Bar and Lounge after an argument that started inside the bar over a spilled drink that involved four women who were with Brown and McKinney. A homeless man, Jeffrey Dudley, who was lying on the sidewalk near Mission Bar and Lounge was injured in the shooting.
