Court Date Is Set Back For Man Accused In Shooting Of UNL Soccer Player
The trial for the man accused of firing the shot that killed a UNL soccer star, has been moved back a month. That's because some of the witnesses in the case will be from the NU soccer team, which competes in the NCAA women's soccer tournament during the previously scheduled trial. Twenty-three-year-old Lucky Iromuanya faces charges of second-degree murder in the death of soccer player Jenna Cooper, who died after she was shot in the throat, at a party on April 25th, 2004. Iromuanya also faces an attempted second-degree murder in the shooting of Nolan Jenkins. His two-week trial is now set for December 6th.
