CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — A hearing is set Wednesday afternoon for a man who's accused of fatally shooting an 18-year-old friend.

20-year-old Austin Fair is charged with the March 2016 shooting death of his friend Josiah Cantu.

He's expected to enter a plea today.

Cantu was shot at a home on Hanley Drive and died a few days later.

At first police thought it was an accidental shooting.

About a year later however, new evidence led to a grand jury indictment for manslaughter against Fair.
