Buckner Back in Court

The man police call a person of interest in the death of 12-year-old Ashleigh Moore was in court today on other charges. Bobby Buckner appeared before Judge Brannen for a routine motion hearing.

He is scheduled to go to trial in July. Police say he molested three girls under the age of sixteen between 1997 and 2001.

In April of 2003, Ashleigh Moore was killed and her body was found along the Savannah riverfront. At the time Moore was living with her mother and Buckner.

So far Buckner has not been charged with her death.
