David L. Womack

The case against an Independence man accused of murdering his brother in Carrollton has been sent to trial.

A Ray County judge Wednesday scheduled David Womack’s trial for April.

Womack is being tried in Ray County on a change of venue.

He’s facing charges of first-degree murder and armed criminal action after he allegedly shot his brother, Bill Womack, 58, in early January.

David Womack, 46, is being held on a $750,000 bond.
