A former 'stand your ground' case is once again in the spotlight.
- Pretrial set for Curtis Reeves
- Reeves accused of fatally shooting Chad Oulsen at movie
- Judge denied Reeves' 'stand your ground' defense
- Reeves to go to trial on murder charges
The pretrial for Curtis Reeves is set for Thursday at 9 a.m. Reeves is accused of fatally shooting Chad Oulsen at a Wesley Chapel movie theater three years ago.
Reeves tried to say he shot the victim out of fear for his own life, but a judge ruled otherwise.
Reeves will go to trial on murder charges and cannot use 'stand your ground' as a defense.
The attorney for Oulsen's widow said Nicole was relieved to hear the judges ruling.
Reeves' attorney plans to appeal.
If it doesn't go his way, a trial could be scheduled in a year or longer.
