DADE CITY, Fla. (AP) — Attorneys for a former Tampa Police captain accused of shooting a man to death during an argument in a movie theater can recreate the crime scene for the jury at his second-degree murder trial.

Pasco County Judge Pat Siracusa ruled Wednesday that attorneys for 72-year-old Curtis Reeves can reconstruct the scene inside the Cobb CineBistro theater in Wesley Chapel.

Reeves is accused of killing 43-year-old Chad Oulson in January after the two became embroiled in an argument that began over Oulson texting during movie previews before a showing of "Lone Survivor."

The trial will begin sometime in 2015.
