WELCH, W.Va. -- A trial date has been set for a Virginia man and his sister charged with first-degree murder in the slaying of War Mayor Thomas Hatcher.

Earl Click of Grundy, Va., and Rebecca (Click) Hatcher of War are also charged with conspiracy.

The siblings are scheduled to stand trial Aug. 13 in McDowell County Circuit Court.

According to the McDowell County Prosecutor's office, Click and Hatcher will be tried separately in different courtrooms.

Hatcher was the mayor's daughter-in-law.

City workers found the body of Tom Hatcher, 72, in his home on July 12, 2012. Earl Click and Rebecca Hatcher were arrested nine days later. The pair were indicted by a Grand Jury in February 2013.
