A judge has indefinitely postponed the trial of a man charged in last year's fatal shooting of Mingo County Sheriff Eugene Crum.
Tennis Melvin Maynard had been scheduled to go on trial March 4. He's charged with murder.
Defense attorney Rich Weston told The Herald-Dispatch the delay involved Maynard's medical records.
Farrell ordered Maynard in November to undergo a mental health evaluation.
Crum was fatally shot last April in a downtown Williamson parking lot as he ate lunch in his parked vehicle.
Maynard also is charged with attempted murder linked to the pointing of a loaded firearm at a Mingo County sheriff's corporal and with fleeing. He also faces federal firearms charges.
