Wiggins delay

Baker

The trial date for the man accused of killing Dickson County sheriff’s Sgt. Daniel Baker has been postponed until August.

Steven Wiggins was set to go on trial Feb. 3 in connection with the May 2018 death of Baker. Last month, however, Dickson County Circuit Judge David Wolfe granted a defense motion to delay the trial until Aug. 17, according to court documents.

Wiggins is accused of shooting Baker multiple times, dragging his body into his patrol car and setting the vehicle ablaze. Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty.
