A trial date has been set for former college football player William Riley Gaul, who is alleged to have his ex-girlfriend. He was in court on Friday for a status hearing, before hearing that the trial date would be set for Dec. 4.

Gaul has been indicted in January on charges that he killed his ex-girlfriend Emma Jane Walker, 16. The former Maryville College wide receiver is charged with first-degree murder, aggravated stalking, theft, tampering with evidence, reckless endangerment, employing a firearm during a dangerous felony, and felony murder.

The former cheerleader, the investigators allege, was killed by Gaul as she was sleeping on Nov. 21, 2016. The investigators also allege that he stole a gun from his grandfather, when they swapped cars briefly, to commit the crime.

The Knox County Sheriff’s Office said that Walker broke off the relationship with Gaul two weeks before the murder. He shot a 9 mm handgun into her room.

Prior to his arrest, he used Twitter to express his love for her. He reportedly said on Twitter, two weeks before shooting her, “I’d do anything to have it all back.”

Gaul, according to the indictment, attempted to ditch the gun. Almost immediately, law enforcement authorities knew Gaul was the alleged gunman and closed in on him at the Woodland Apartments.
