GREENEVILLE-The first of four defendants charged with first-degree murder in connection with the shooting deaths of a man and woman in 2012 is scheduled to go to trial on Jan. 13.

Christopher Allen Jones, 32, of 649 7th St., Newport, is charged with first-degree murder for his alleged role in the deaths of Courtney A. Thompson and Terrence L. Stewart.

Judge John F. Dugger Jr. set the January trial date for Jones Wednesday during a pretrial conference in Greene County Criminal Court.

The double homicide occurred early March 11, 2012, in Greene County.
