A preliminary hearing date was set Wednesday for a local man accused of vehicular manslaughter in the death of his girlfriend last year.

Bryon Jeffrey Murray, 29, was scheduled to appear in San Fernando Superior Court Aug. 24 in connection with the death of his girlfriend, Rosemary Flynn.

Assistant District Attorney James R. Bozajian is expected to prosecute the Santa Clarita Valley man on two preliminary charges - involuntary manslaughter and vehicular manslaughter.

His defense lawyer is Evelyn Burns.

Murray was arrested in June on suspicion of vehicular manslaughter and involuntary manslaughter in connection with Flynn's death and pleaded not guilty in San Fernando Superior Court later that month.

Flynn, 21, of Canyon Country, died in July 2010 after fracturing her skull.

At the time of Murray's arrest, homicide detectives with the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department said witnesses told them Flynn and Murray got into an argument outside the apartment they shared on Jakes Way after the two got back from a Canyon Country bar and restaurant about 1:30 a.m. on July 31.

When Murray tried to drive away in his truck, Flynn grabbed onto the driver's door, Sgt. Ron Duval said at the time.

Flynn was thrown from the side of the truck and hit her head on the asphalt as the truck made a U-turn, he said.

Murray took Flynn back to their apartment. But when she wouldn't wake up eight hours after she hit her head, Murray called paramedics, Duval said.

Friends of the dead woman held an anniversary vigil for her in July.
