A Stand Your Ground case
has been dismissed by the court of appeals.
Preston Oates will now
go to trial on Oct. 14. Investigators say he fatally shot Carlos Olivera on Christmas
Eve 2010 after he put a boot on Rivera's car.
The court of appeals denied
his request to consider it as a self-defense case that would have prevented him
from going to trial.
