A Stanislaus County Superior Court judge has set a new trial date for Nicholas Harris, who stands accused of killing a man five years ago.

A jury trial is tentatively slated to start May 27. Harris has been in custody since 2008 on charges of murder and arson in the death of Mark Henson.

According to the Turlock Police Department, which investigated the homicide, Mark Henson was stabbed at least 15 times and was found bleeding in the front yard of a home on Bennington Avenue. His car, parked nearby, had been set on fire. He was rushed to Emanuel Medical Center, where he died from his injuries.

Harris remains in custody in lieu of a $5 million bail.
