Trial date set in Sept. for Vick co-defendant

SUSSEX, Va. (AP) -A trial date for one of Michael Vick's co-defendants on state dogfighting charges will be set on Sept. 23.

Tony Taylor's trial date was supposed to be set Tuesday in Surry County Circuit Court. However, no agreement has been reached and the matter was continued.

Taylor has already served a two-month federal prison term for his role in Vick's dogfighting enterprise.

Taylor is charged with beating or killing or causing dogs to fight other dogs, and engaging in or promoting dogfighting. Both charges are felonies punishable by up to five years in prison.

Vick, the former Atlanta Falcons star quarterback, and two other co-defendants face the same charges. They won't be tried until they finish serving their federal prison terms.
