Man charged in 2012 firefighter slaying expected back in court

Posted: Updated:
SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Another court appearance is scheduled for Monday for Brandon Mackey, the man charged with killing firefighter Wesley Franklin in Sandfly in 2012. 

It's been almost two years since the shooting happened. Friends and family of Franklin continue to wait for his accused killer to be brought to justice. 

His defense was granted a continuance for time to review the results of a competency test that recently came back. 

Detectives say Mackey was trying to rob two women outside Deb's Pub and Grub in Sandfly in June 2012, and when the bar door opened during the crime, Mackey pulled the trigger hitting Franklin.
