    A Jan. 30 trial date has been set in Miami for four men accused in the 2007 slaying of Washington Redskins star safety Sean Taylor.

    The date was set Friday by Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Dennis Murphy at a brief hearing.

    The four men from the Fort Myers area are accused of fatally shooting Taylor during an attempted robbery at his home. All have pleaded not guilty and face potential life prison sentences if convicted.

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