ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Quantavious Thomas is set to go on trial today, after an innocent lady died from being struck by a stray bullet in 2015.

Thomas faces charges of felony murder, three counts of possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, aggravated assault, and two counts of influencing a witness.

Court documents say Thomas shot at a group of men on Cedar Avenue in February of 2015, and instead hit and killed 67-year-old Frances Clay.

Officials said Clay was inside her home at the time, and died after a bullet went through a window and hit her.

Albany Police found Clay dead in her home five days later during a welfare check.

Also indicted in the case were Syndra Lesha Jackson and Shannon Marquiz Jordan.

Jackson was charged with two counts of possession of a firearm by first offender probationer.

Jordan was charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

If convicted, Thomas could face life in prison without parole.
