PHOENIX (AP) — An August 2016 trial date has been set for a homeless ex-convict charged with beating a Catholic priest with a metal rod and fatally shooting another clergyman during a burglary at a Phoenix church.
Gary Michael Moran has pleaded not guilty to charges that he badly beat the Rev. Joseph Terra and fatally shot the Rev. Kenneth Walker in the June 11 attack at the Mother of Mercy Mission.
Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty against Moran.
Moran was arrested four days after the attack.
Authorities say Moran acknowledged his involvement in the crime, though he initially he didn't remember what happened.
He was sentenced to more than four years in prison after pleading guilty in 2001 to misconduct involving weapons. He also was convicted in two 1989 burglaries.

It’s hard to think of many actors from the past few decades who were one of a kind, but Robin Williams was truly a performing force unlike anything that’s ever existed. No one will ever be able to fill his now sadly empty shoes. The fact that his life was taken in such a lonely, horrific fashion after a long struggle with depression only makes this loss more tragic. For now, however, let’s focus on how Williams lived as apposed to how he died. What a life he lived and what an unparalleled career full of laughs, inspiration, and flubber he’s left behind. In honor of this great talent, here are my five personal choices for his best performances in film.
