YUMA, Ariz. (KYMA, KECY) - The Yuma man charged with murder after a shooting at a local bar appeared in court today to finalize his trial dates.

Hall learned of his trial dates Tuesday morning.
His defense attorney asked for additional time so they can interview both a pathologist and a paramedic who was previously interviewed in the case.
Judge Darci Weede asked that the jury questionnaire be finalized between the defense and the prosecution by Tuesday afternoon.
Hall's trial is scheduled to begin on May 24 and is expected to end by June 9.
