A new August trial date has been set in Miami for the alleged shooter in the 2007 slaying of former Washington Redskins star safety Sean Taylor.

Eric Rivera Jr., 22, will stand trial Aug. 12, Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Dennis Murphy said Tuesday. The case has been delayed numerous times since Taylor was killed during what prosecutors say was a botched robbery at his Miami-area home.

Rivera and three others, all from the Fort Myers area, have pleaded not guilty and are being tried separately. Each faces a possible life sentence if convicted. 

A fifth man previously pleaded guilty to murder and burglary charges and is likely to testify against the others.

Taylor starred in college at the University of Miami.
