By The Associated Press

OXFORD — The trial of a man charged in the deaths of Lafayette County father and son last year is scheduled for March 21, 2011.

The Oxford Eagle reports that Circuit Court Judge Andrew Howorth set the date after defense attorneys requested more time to prepare for trial.

Caleb Corrothers is charged with two counts of capital murder in the July 18, 2009 shooting deaths of Frank and Taylor Clark at their home. Corrothers also is charged with aggravated assault in the wounding of Tonya Clark, the wife and mother.

Prosecutors have said they will seek the death penalty.

Corrothers was being held without bond at the Lafayette County jail.
