HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - A trial date has been set for the murder case of Heather Elvis.

The trial against Tammy and Sidney Moorer is scheduled for May 11, according to a scheduling order filed by the office of Solicitor Jimmy Richardson.

"I'm glad they finally set a date, it appears it's going to move forward...but, the main thing we're hoping for is the same as always, that answers will come out and we'll find out where our daughter is," said Terry Elvis, father of Heather.

A deadline for May 1 has been set for the defense and the state to provide a witness list for the case, the order states.

A request to summon 800 jurors for the murder trial of Heather Elvis has been scheduled May 11.

"The Court's previous experience in such cases having clearly demonstrated that a larger than usual panel of jurors is necessary, and it further appearing to the Court that the ends of the justice would best be served by summoning a larger than usual panel of jurors," states the order, filed by Solicitor Jimmy Richardson.

Following the selection of the jury, the trial is scheduled to begin.

Judge R. Markley Dennis, Jr., of Moncks Corner, will preside over the case.
