A trial date has been set for a man pleading not guilty in an attempted murder case.

Carlos Sterling, 28, of Baton Rouge, will be in court on April 11 to defend himself against charges of aggravated battery, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and illegal use of a weapon in the attack.

He is also suspected of a shooting on Canonicus Street on Nov. 11, 2014 in which a juvenile was shot in the arm. He is charged with attempted second-degree murder and illegal use of a weapon in connection with the shooting. He pled not guilty to the charges in 2015.

Sterling was convicted on a negligent homicide charge in the 2009 shooting death of his uncle, Robert Sterling. He was sentenced to five years in prison, and was released in 2014.
