Trial Postponed For Man Accused Of Shooting Woman

A Lincoln County man accused of shooting a woman then leading police on a chase was scheduled to go on trial Monday, but that trial was postponed.

Sharon Dale Greer is charged with assault and wanton endangerment.

In January, police say he shot Sandra Mullins, then took off. Police searched for him for several hours, even locking down Highland Elementary during that search.

Police say he shot himself in the head when they closed in on him. Greer survived that injury.

The Lincoln Circuit Clerk's office says instead of the start of the trial, a pre-trial conference has been set for May 27th, at which time a new trial date is expected to be set.

The reason for the postponement is unknown at this time.
