GARLAND COUNTY, Ark. (KTHV) - A twice-convicted murderer is preparing to go on trial for the third murder he is accused in.

Randy Gay will have a pre-trial hearing Monday morning, a week before he is scheduled to face a jury in the case of Connie Snow's murder.

Prosecutors say Gay shot Snow during an argument in May 2011, then solicited several men to help load her body in to a truck and dumped it in the Ouachita National Forest.

Gay was previously convicted in two other murders. In 1978, he killed his father-in-law, serving nine months in prison after agreeing to a plea deal and being released early.

The second murder was in 1991, when he killed his father. The jury sentenced him to 20 years, of which he served eight.
