The trial for a Rochester man, Devante S. Lively, accused of the murder of a Rochester high school student, Larie Butler, who went missing last year is set to begin April 29.
A Monroe County grand jury indicted Lively on the charge of second-degree murder, for allegedly intentionally causing the death of Larie Butler, almost a year ago, on April 12, 2012.
Lively had been an acquaintance of Butler’s family.
Larie Butler was last seen alive on March 24, 2012. Lively, 20 at the time, was taken into custody less than a week later, after Butler’s body was discovered at the bottom of a pool on Dorington Road in southeast Irondequoit.
The pool where Larie Butler was found was behind a home next door to Lively’s grandmother’s house. The cause of death, police said, was multiple wounds to her torso.
