WICHITA FALLS, Tx (RNN Texoma) -

Officials with the 30th District Court in Wichita Falls confirmed late Tuesday morning admitted murderer Kody Lott will stand trial in September. 

Lott's trial for the shooting death of Lauren Landavazo has been set for September 10. A tentative location has been confirmed in Tarrant County. 

The Landavazo Family released a statement following the news;

"Today’s news that the person responsible for the murder of our beloved daughter Lauren will finally have to answer for his actions leaves Bianka and I with mixed emotions. While we are relieved that this part of our healing process is moving forward, we are also still aware of the many painful days ahead. We know that whatever the outcome of the trial, our beautiful girl was taken from our earthly lives too soon on September 2nd, 2016 and we cannot change that, no matter how many tears we cry or how deeply we beg. It is a day we know we will never forget and we know our community will never forget it either. For us, it was a day when our dream life turned in to a nightmare. For the other parents of this community, it was a day to be thankful that it was not their child who was the target of such hatred and cowardice."
