(VALPARAISO) - An August trial date has been set for a former Hammond and Gary police officer charged in the death of the mother of three of his children.

Kevin Campbell of Hobart has pleaded not guilty to a murder charge in the shooting death of his former girlfriend, 30-year-old Tiara Thomas. He's being held without bond.

At a hearing Monday in Porter County Court, Campbell's trial was scheduled to begin August 8.

Authorities say phone records indicated Campbell and Thomas argued over nearly $1,500 in child support he paid and that creditors were calling him.

Police also found numerous voicemails from creditors on Campbell's cellphone, and he had a bank account balance of $7.58 when Thomas died.

Campbell was fired by the Hammond Police Department days after Thomas' body was discovered.
