EL CENTRO, CA.- A trial date is expected to be set soon for a suspect accused of murdering a Yuma man nearly two years ago.

Gerardo Montes was in Imperial County Jail Court Tuesday morning.

A judge ordered a readiness conference to set a trial date and jury selection in the murder of Adrian Chee.

Chee was found shot to death in a brush area in Winterhaven near San Pasqual School back in August of 2010.

The Imperial County Sheriff's Office arrested Montes at a Yuma home a month later.

He has been behind bars ever since on $1 million bond.

Montes will be back in court July 2.
