TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - A new trial is set for the Topeka man convicted of killing another man outside a local bar in 2008.
James Qualls is scheduled to appear in court on October 28th. His trial is expected to last five days.
Qualls is convicted of second degree intentional murder for the death of Joseph Beier in a fight at the whiplash bar. Beier was shot 11 times.
Qualls received a life sentence with no parole for 25 years in his 2010 trial.
In April, the Kansas Supreme Court agreed with Qualls' appeal that jurors should have been instructed on the lesser charge of voluntary manslaughter.
