Bill Scheer trial moved to Macon

March 25, 2003

Albany --Bill Scheer's murder trial will be held in Macon. The 53-year-old Scheer, a Monroe High math teacher, is charged with killing his elderly father 12 years ago.

District Attorney Ken Hodges says moving the case to Macon will not change the way they try the case.

Dougherty District Attorney Ken Hodges said "Everything else will be done here in Dougherty County. All the further motions and filings. On Sunday we'll go up there, get ready and start trying it Monday morning. We'll pick a jury Monday morning, and I expect we can try it to completion by the end of the week."

The trial starts May 12th. Scheer is still working for the Dougherty County School System, in an administrative job away from students.
