June trial set in 2011 shooting near Neelys Landing
Two Cape Girardeau men will be tried this summer for allegedly shooting a man in the head near Neelys Landing in August.
Seth A. Summers, 32, and Jimmy Ray Bell, 29, will stand trial June 20 before Judge William Syler. Both men are charged with first-degree assault and armed criminal action.
On Aug. 28, the Cape Girardeau County Sheriff's Department received a 911 call after a man covered in blood knocked on a door in the Neelys Landing area, a news release said. It was determined after officers arrived on the scene that the victim had a gunshot wound to the head.
Summers and Bell have been in custody since the incident. Investigators found latex gloves, bleach and a change of clothes in Summers' car, as well as texts between Summers and Bell about the assault.
Both men remain in the Cape Girardeau County Jail with bond set for each of them at $200,000 cash only.
