HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – A trial date has been set for Heather Sims, who is accused of the murder of her husband in August 2013, but is arguing she was protecting herself under the state’s “Stand Your Ground” law.

The murder trial for Sims is scheduled to begin on November 16, 2015, in Conway, according to court documents.

At a hearing back in July, the defense team of Heather Sims argued Sims used the Stand Your Ground law to protect herself from her husband, David Sims. The judge in this hearing decided to allow the case to continue to trial.

In August 2013, Horry County Police officers responded to 3562 Old Reaves Ferry Road in Conway in reference to a shooting and stabbing.

Police said on arrival they found 35-year-old David Sims, Jr. shot to death inside his home. Police added that when they got into the house they also found David Sims' wife, Heather, had been stabbed.

Investigators claim there was an altercation between the two which resulted in both the shooting and the stabbing.
