BELTON — No trial date was set during a status hearing in the Marvin Louis Guy capital murder case on Thursday afternoon, as attorneys for both the state and defense await one of two expert reports.
State District Judge John Gauntt, who presides over the 27th District Court, said he has not received the second report. One report was distributed to the prosecution and defense at the last status hearing in the case, in July.
The reports concern whether Guy, 53, is competent to stand trial, according to court proceedings.
Guy was booked into the Bell County Jail on May 10, 2014, after a Killeen detective was killed while the SWAT team served an early morning “no-knock” narcotics warrant at Guy’s apartment on Circle M Drive in Killeen on May 9.
Charles “Chuck” Dinwiddie, a detective and KPD SWAT team leader, died a few days after being shot during the raid, and three other officers were shot and survived.
In past interviews, Guy has said that he believed his home was being broken into during the 5 a.m. raid, and he began shooting in self-defense.
Guy is charged with one count of capital murder and three counts of attempted capital murder, and is being held in lieu of $4.5 million in bail.
Guy’s lead lawyer, Carlos Garcia, said he expected the second report to be emailed to Gauntt by Thursday afternoon, and the judge promised to distribute the report to both sides when received.
Henry Garza, Bell County district attorney, is trying the case for the state, along with Fred Burns, assistant district attorney.
In a previous hearing, Gauntt placed a gag order on the case.
The attorneys agreed to have another status hearing on Aug. 30.
