COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - The man accused of the shooting death of Oscar Agbor is heading to trial.

Edmund Eno faces charges of murder, aggravated assault, and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime according to court documents.

Detectives say Agbor was with Eno's wife in December of 2005 when he was fatally shot four times driving along Interstate 185.

According to reports, Eno saw Agbor and Eno's wife, Rachel, leaving a motel and followed them.

Several drivers witnessed the shooting and called in a description of Eno's burgundy Toyota, but it was a 911 dispatcher who recognized the description of the car from an earlier call.

According to police, Eno approached a soldier on Victory Drive and asked the soldier to help him load a 45 caliber gun, the soldier declined and immediately called police.

He was also able to give Eno's tag number. And although the incident happened six hours earlier, the dispatcher was able to recognize the similar vehicle description.

Eno is scheduled for trial on April 26th in Judge Frank Jordan's courtroom. Stay tuned to News Leader 9 as we continue to follow this developing story.
