Murder of a police officer or stand your ground

Nine years after the shooting death of Killeen police detective Chuck Dinwiddie, the man accused of his murder is finally set to begin trial on Oct. 30, 2023. according to KCEN-TV in Texas. The trial pits capital murder against the stand your ground doctrine.

Marvin Guy is charged with Capital Murder for the death of Dinwiddie on May 9, 2014. Guy is accused of shooting Dinwiddie when police conducted a no-knock raid at his home.

Guy has been in county jail for nine years. During this time, he has been represented by 11 different attorneys, causing multiple delays for the trial. 

Most recently on April 12, 2023, a judge granted a motion from yet another defense team to withdraw from Guy's counsel.

Today, a motion by the prosecution to request a visiting judge was denied and Guy is now set to begin trial at the end of October.
