TRUSSVILLE — A Trussville teen charged with capital murder now has a trial date.
Steven Chase Lafoy, charged with capital murder in the death of Trent Thomas Parkerson, will face a jury trial at 9 a.m. on May 9, 2022 according to court documents filed Friday, December 17. He will also have a pre-trial hearing on motions and matters related to the case on February 9 at 10 a.m.
Lafoy was 17 at the time of the shooting, on Wednesday, April 1, 2020.
Lafoy was originally given a bond and posted a $500,000 property bond to be released from the Jefferson County Jail. However, that bond was revoked after he was arrested in November, for possession of marijuana. He has remained in jail since.
Parkerson, 18, was pronounced dead on the scene. He was inside a locked vehicle.
Detectives said Lafoy and Parkerson, who were friends, got into a physical altercation over a theft that had occurred. They believe Parkerson was attempting to leave when he was shot with a rifle.
Both teens were students at Hewitt-Trussville High School. They were also teammates on the varsity football team.
Lafoy is considered innocent until proven guilty.
