A trial date has been moved for an Albemarle County man charged with murdering a man who disappeared 15 years ago.
Kevin Michael Moore, 35, along with his father, Richard Glen Spradlin, 57, were charged in 2018 in the death of Jesse Hicks, who was reported missing in 2004. The two men each are charged with first-degree murder, conspiracy to commit murder and using a firearm in commission of a felony.
According to authorities, Hicks left his Fluvanna County home Sept. 1, 2004, and never returned. His truck was found four days later in Nelson County. His body was found in May 2014 in Keene, in southern Albemarle.
Moore had been set to go to trial in December, but the trial was continued.
On Friday, counsel for Moore waived his right to a speedy trial and a new trial date was set.
Moore’s five-day jury trial will now begin July 6. Spradlin’s five-day trial is set begin March 23.
