Trial Set for Man Accused of Killing Marion County Woman

The man accused of kidnapping and killing 80 year old Mary Ann Elvington in Marion County last year has been scheduled to appear in court. The trial of Dominique Brand is scheduled to begin on September 6th and jury selections will start on August 9th. Brand is accused of holding Elvington at gunpoint in her vehicle and forcing her to drive to North Carolina then to Lakeview before shooting her with a shotgun behind an abandoned grocery store in Marion County. The crime is eligible for the death penalty but his attorneys hope to get it taken off the table.
