Ira Beumer appeared in court Friday morning.

He's the Vanderburgh County man charged with murder after an alleged robbery at his home earlier this year.

Today a judge set new pre-trial and holding dates for Beumer.

He is also now allowed to travel anywhere in Vanderburgh County, for work purposes only.

Beumer told authorities he was robbed at gunpoint at his home on Big Cynthiana Rd. in February.

He's accused of chasing the robbery suspects in his truck and crashing into their car.

One man died.

Beumer has been free on bond since May.
