MOULTRIE, Ga. (WTXL) — A June trial date has been set for the Colquitt man accused of killing five of his own friends.

Peacock was charged with malice murder along with aggravated animal cruelty along with multiple gun charges in May of 2016. Officials say Peacock could be sentenced to life with or without parole.
