— Judge Donald Stephens set a trial date of July 6 for the suspect in the shooting death of a Raleigh movie theater manager.

Anthony Joseph Bimbo, 40, of 5405 Orchard Oriole Trail, is one of three suspects in the Oct. 24 shooting of Mark Douglas Buhaug, a manager at the Marquee Cinema in the Wakefield Commons shopping center off Capital Boulevard.

Two other men, Ryan Becker, 19, and Jason Zilinski, 18, are also charged with murder in Buhaug's death.
Theater employees said Zilinski worked at the theater and lived with Bimbo, whom neighbors said was his stepfather.

According to court records, Bimbo married Zilinski's mother in 2003, and they separated last January. A court order told Bimbo to leave their house by Nov. 1.
