A new date for the murder trial of former LaFayette City policeman Sam Parker has been set. The former cop is charged in the death of his estranged wife, Theresa who worked for Walker County 911. The murder is believed to have taken place two years ago. Parker will be tried for murder in Walker County Superior Court, beginning August 17th. The jury for the trial will come from Bartow County because of the publicity surrounding the case. Jury selection for the trial is set to begin August 10th.

The body of Theresa Parker has never been found.
