PICKENS COUNTY - The man charged with the 2006 slaying of Clemson University junior Tiffany Souers is scheduled to stand trial later this year.
Jerry Buck Inman, 36, formerly of Dandridge, Tenn., will face a Pickens County jury Sept. 8 on charges of murder, kidnapping and rape, according to documents filed last week with the clerk of court.
Investigators believe Souers was murdered in the early morning hours of May 26, 2006.

Around her neck was a bikini top and she was bound at the wrists and ankles, reports said.
On June 2, images were released of a man wearing a bandanna over his face attempting to use Souers' ATM card only hours after her death.
Inman was arrested June 6 following the discovery her body in her off-campus apartment at The Reserve in Central.
Later, after DNA evidence gathered from Souers' apartment matched Inman's profile in a national sex offender database, 13th Circuit Solicitor Bob Ariail announced that a warrant had been issued for his arrest.
Inman was arrested in Tennessee near his parents' home.
The state is seeking the death penalty against Inman and the trial will be heard by The Honorable Edward W. Miller.
The trial is expected to last about two weeks, court documents said.
A civil engineering student, Souers was originally from Ladue, Mo.
