FAYETTEVILLE (KFSM)- The capital murder trial for a 26-year-old Fayetteville man accused of shooting his father to death near Elkins has been reset, according to Matt Durrett, Chief Deputy Prosecuting Attorney.

The date for Sam Hill’s trial will be set to sometime in 2015, Durrett said. It was delayed because they are waiting on crime lab results, he said.

Hill faces a capital murder charge and other charges in the shooting death of his father Allen Hill, 61.

Sam Hill shot and killed his father Wednesday night following an argument and gunfight at 12397 S. Whitehouse Road, according to the Washington County Sheriff’s Office. The younger Hill had beat his wife moments earlier at their Fayetteville home, authorities said.
