Plummer set to face trial next month

The murder and death penalty prosecution of Theron Plummer could go to trial in Rome as early as next month after Judge Tami Colston rejects a motion from Plummer’s defense team to recuse herself from the case. Judge Colston said the defense briefs cited no specific reasons that warrant her recusal. Judge Colston has reserved judgment on a defense motion for a change of venue for the trial. Plummer is accused of shooting killing Kimberly Ware at the residence on Woodland Street home in front of their two children late in May of 2008. He was arrested by agents of the Southeastern Fugitive Task Force in Anniston, Ala., several days later.
