CLINTON, La. (AP) - Ryan Sharpe, a Louisiana man who has pleaded insanity in a series of fatal shootings of men outside their homes in 2017, has had one of his trials rescheduled.

The Advocate reports Sharpe will now be tried in June for second-degree murder in the death of Carroll Breeden Sr., who was killed in his front yard.

Sharpe's first trial is set for December in the shootings of three other men. He faces charges of murder in the deaths of Brad DeFranceschi, who was shot on a Boy Scouts property, and Thomas Bass, who was shot in his yard.

He's accused of attempted murder in the wounding of Buck Hornsby.

Sharpe called the police and said he was filling government hunting "tags." He later pleaded insanity, but doctors deemed him competent for trial.
