COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - A capital murder case in Columbus has tentative start date.

A possible trial date for Brandon Connor, who is accused of killing his girlfriend and infant son, has been set for either Jan. 22 or Jan. 29.

Connor is facing the death penalty on charges of killing Rosella Mitchell and their infant son Dylan and then setting Mitchell's house on fire back in August of 2014.
