Trial date set for man charged with murder of 8-year-old Khalil Singleton

HILTON HEAD ISLAND, SC (WTOC) -

There are new details about the trial of one of the three men charged with the shooting death of 8-year-old Khalil Singleton in September 2012.

The attorney for Tyrone Robinson has confirmed that his trial is set to start on September 15. Robinson is one of three men charged in Singleton's death.

Robinson, 37, was originally on trial with Aaron Young, Sr. and Aaron Young, Jr., but they judge later postponed the trial because of recordings that surfaced. The judge then decided to try them all separately.

Aaron Young, Sr. and Aaron Young, Jr. will likely go to trial after Robinson.

Singleton was killed in the crossfire after Robinson and Young, Jr. exchanged gunfire on Hilton Head Island. Authorities believe the incident was part of an ongoing drug related fued among the men.

Robinson and Young, Jr. have been charged with murder and Young, Jr. and Young, Sr. have also been charged with conspiracy to commit the murder of Robinson.
