BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - The man accused of killing a mother and badly wounding her daughter during a violent home invasion shooting in 2010 is expected to be back in court Tuesday.

A motions hearing is scheduled for Aramis Jackson, the man suspected of shooting Alexandra Engler and her daughter, Ariana, in September 2010. He is charged with first-degree murder and attempted first-degree murder.

Engler was shot to death inside her Beauregard Town home. Her daughter, who was nine years old at the time, was seriously wounded in the attack. Investigators said Jackson's DNA was found on Engler's door.

District Judge Tony Marabella ruled in July that he believes there was no conflict with Jackson's attorneys. Attorney David Price with the Baton Rouge Conflict Office is handling his case and claimed he should be allowed to withdraw because of a conflict with Jackson's father in another murder case. The suspect had already been through several lawyers.

A trial date has not been set.
