A judge on Thursday rescheduled a trial to start April 13 for a 56-year-old Modesto man charged with murder in the shooting of his wife during an apparent domestic dispute.
Mitchell Joseph Azevedo is accused of shooting his wife, 60-year-old Sharon Lorraine Azevedo. The defendant remains in custody at the Stanislaus County Jail as he awaits his trial.
The shooting occurred during an argument shortly before 5 p.m. Aug. 21, 2011, at the couple’s home in the 3300 block of Creek Bed Court in north Modesto.
Stanislaus Superior Court Judge Thomas Zeff scheduled the defendant to return to court Aug. 14 for a pretrial hearing.
