A court hearing for Town Manager Anthony Troiano, who remained in a coma as of late last week after a car crash last month, has been tentatively rescheduled for Aug. 20, his lawyer said.

Troiano could be charged with motor vehicle homicide in connection with the crash, which killed East Falmouth woman. Troiano had been scheduled to go before a clerk magistrate in Falmouth District Court on June 11, but the hearing was pushed back due to his condition, his attorney, Augustus Wagner, said.

Meanwhile, selectmen last week tapped Fire Chief Gary Daugherty to serve as the acting town manager. Daugherty agreed to serve three to four months in the position.
