ODESSA - A court date has been set for an Odessa teen accused of murder.

The 14-year-old will have a hearing on May 8th.

He's charged with killing four year old Walker Lumpkin.

Lumpkin was ran over by a four wheeler back in July of last year.

We're told paramedics checked him out but didn't find any broken bones.

A week later, his family brought him to the hospital with head injuries and Lumpkin died.

Ector County Sheriff Mark Donaldson says the wreck was not the fatal injury but a blow to the head.

The 14-year old was charged with murder back in January.
