A judge has scheduled a preliminary hearing to start Sept. 17 for a defendant accused of shooting to death a man last year in Turlock.

Gabriel Miranda of Turlock has been charged with murder in the May 2 fatal shooting of Simon White, 24, in the 100 block of Vermont Avenue.

A month after the shooting, authorities found and arrested Miranda in Idaho.

A prosecutor has said in court that Miranda is an associate of the Nuestra Familia prison gang, which directs criminal activities carried out by the Norteños street gang.
