A Kettering teenager facing adult charges in the 2016 Labor Day weekend slaying of a Fairmont High School student now faces a trial more than two years after the shooting.
Kylen Gregory’s trial for the Sept. 4, 2016, deadly shooting of Ronnie Bowers had been scheduled to start May 7. But in late April Montgomery County Common Pleas Judge Dennis Langer granted a request by the defense for a continuance.
On Thursday, Langer set the new date for Nov. 5.
Gregory pleaded not guilty in August 2017 to two counts of murder and related charges. He and Bowers were both 16 at the time of the shooting, which occurred about 9 p.m. on Willowdale Avenue in Kettering. Gregory turned 18 in March.
Bowers died two days after the shooting in what was ruled Kettering’s first gun-related homicide since 2007.
Gregory has been in juvenile detention since shortly after the shooting. His bond was set at $1 million.
