LOVE COUNTY, OK -- A trial date has been set for the Love County man accused of killing his 78-year-old father in law and his 80-year-old sister this spring.

65-year-old Aaron Carlile is accused of shooting and killing Sunny and Almenia Culwell while they were fixing a fence on family property in rural Love County on May 3rd.

Carlile maintained his plea of not guilty and is now set to face jury trial.

Aaron Carlile was arrested on two counts of first degree murder back in May and attended formal arraignment Tuesday morning.

The Assistant District Attorney of Love County, Tim Burson, says Carlile's jury docket has been set for June 16th of next year.

"The defendant maintains his plea of not guilty and wants a jury trial. So that's what we're going to give him." Burson said.

A motive in the killings remains unclear.

Carlile lived on the property where the shooting took place, which was owned by his father in law.
