The trial date has been set for the end of March for an Iowa City man charged in a shooting death.

Alajuwon Shamar Johnson, 26, was charged Jan. 1 with involuntary manslaughter in the death of 20-year-old Kylie Jo Perkins.

Johnson was also charged with the possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver and carrying weapons.

According to police reports, Johnson was illegally carrying a concealed weapon when he visited Perkins’ apartment. Both he and Perkins handled the weapon before it accidentally discharged and allegedly struck her in the upper torso, officers said.
