The date for a jury trial of a Lake Ozark man accused of shooting a Horseshoe Bend man in late March has been put on the docket.
Courthouse records show a pre-trial conference date of January 17th with a five-day jury trial now set to begin on April 8th.
It’s alleged that James Mark fled into a wooded area near Scarsdale Circle following the shooting and then tried to swipe a nearby car.
Responding deputies recovered some clothing believed to be worn at the crime scene and identified Mark as the shooting suspect.
A tip led deputies to another residence the following day where Mark was taken into custody without further incident.
Mark is formally charged with first-degree assault and burglary, armed criminal action, tampering with a motor vehicle and escape or attempted escape.
He continues to be held without bond.
