During a hearing Thursday, a Nov. 15 court date was set for 74-year-old Sandra Layne, who is facing a murder charge for the death of Jonathan Hoffman.

Hoffman was killed May 18 at the condo he shared with his maternal grandparents in West Bloomfield Township, northwest of Detroit. His parents live in Arizona.

A detective has testified that Hoffman called 911 to report that his 74-year-old grandmother had shot him "in the chest and he was going to die."

A medical examiner testified that Hoffman died from five gunshot wounds - three to his chest, one to his arm and one to his stomach.
