The man accused of killing a teenager on the city’s east side made his final pre-trial court appearance Wednesday.
Glenn Beard goes to trial in two weeks for the murder of 13-year-old Jarrell Tucker. Tucker was killed last summer.
Beard claimed Tucker and a friend tried to rob him but he denies fatally shooting the boy.
Shortly after Tucker’s death, Beard’s home on North Denny Street was deliberately set on fire twice.
