Colucci was found dead in the garage of his house from multiple gunshot wounds. Connie King was seen running from the house screaming and covered in blood.
Connie King had agreed to testify against Troy King in exchange for a lighter sentence.
Assistant District Attorney Jason Ponder told a judge on Wednesday that they are setting aside the plea agreement as she has not lived up to her agreement. The announcement came after Connie King’s attorney Chris Stanford announced that the sentencing needed to be continued until Sept. 16.
Troy King continues to be housed at the Coffee County Jail under a $1 million bond. Connie King is free on a bond of $75,000.
