LOVINGTON, N.M. (AP) - A trial date has been set for a New Mexico man charged with beating a woman to death in front of a child and forcing someone to record the beating with a cell phone.
    
The Hobbs News-Sun reports that Timmithy Stover will face a jury trial Aug. 26 for the death of 28-year-old Candiace Boone.
    
Authorities say the 27-year-old Hobbs resident beat to death his live-girlfriend Boone in March 2013 and forced two others to bind her with duct tape while he beat her.
    
Officials say a child saw most of the beating.
    
The Lea County Sheriff's Office said Stover told deputies he injected Boone with methamphetamine prior to an argument.
    
Stover faces a number of charges including second-degree murder, trafficking methamphetamine, and child abuse.
