Judge Grants Continuance for Miles' Trial in Slocum Murder Case

Lynchburg, VA - A trial date has been set for the man accused of killing his 86-year-old mother-in-law in Lynchburg.

Scott Miles will go on trial on March 17.

This comes after Miles requested a continuance last month.

Miles is charged with the first degree murder of Lynda Slocum.

Last December, police found Slocum's body inside her home on Ravenwood Drive.

Prosecutors claim her neck had been snapped, spinal column broken, and several ribs were cracked.
