A Georgetown man who's accused of Capital Murder in Lexington is one step closer to a trial after a court appearance Friday.

The hearing for 18-year-old Edgar Vieyra was supposed to happen last month but was delayed when Vieyra's attorney invoked the Vienna Convention.

Because Vieyra is a Mexican national, he's entitled to request that the Consular Office be notified of the situation, which it was, leading to Friday's hearing.

Lexington Police say Vieyra burst into his ex-girlfriend's home on Wayland Drive in May and started shooting.

His former girlfriend's father, Librado Romero, was shot and later died.

Three other people in the home were injured.

Police say there was an active restraining order out against Vieyra at the time.

He has pleaded not guilty.

Viera will be back in court August 13th for a pretrial hearing.
