A trial date is now set for the incident last summer that left one Franklin County brother dead and the other seriously injured. The incident happened at the 100 block of Salthouse Branch Road. Officials said Justin Prillaman was pronounced dead on the scene and his brother, James Matthew Prillaman, was taken with serious injuries to the hospital. Four people have been charged with first-degree murder, malicious wounding, and robbery of a residence with a gun. The trial is set to begin at the end of July.
