TALBOT COUNTY, GA (WTVM) -  A trial date has been set for a man accused of strangling a Shiloh woman to death inside her home.

Kirk Bonner was re-indicted Monday by a Talbot County Grand Jury, charged with the murder of his friend, 36-year-old Gloria Ann Bray.

Bray was found strangled to death in 2009.

Police say Bonner had just been released from prison for drug and weapons charges when the murder happened.

The motive may have revolved around an undisclosed amount of money authorities say the victim had.

Bonner's trial date has been set for April 18th in Talbot County Superior Court.
