Report: Conway suspect not mentally fit for trial


CONWAY, Ark. (AP) - A report from an Arkansas State Hospital psychologist has found that a man accused of shooting a woman in a Conway Wal-Mart is mentally unfit to stand trial.

A judge had ordered the mental evaluation for 30-year-old Myron Terrell, who is charged with attempted capital murder in the shooting that wounded a customer at the store. Authorities say Terrell was a maintenance worker at the store and he opened fire on the woman as she stood in the checkout line.

The victim, Lori Martin, tells the Log Cabin Democrat (http://bit.ly/1piXaFL ) that she'd never seen or heard of Terrell before the Feb. 1 shooting.

The forensic report says Terrell's "ability to assist in his defense is concerning."

Terrell remains confined in the State Hospital and is due in court Monday.

Judge sets trial in Conway police officer's death


CONWAY, Ark. (AP) - A judge has scheduled a December trial for a Bald Knob man charged with battery and driving while intoxicated in a traffic wreck that killed a Conway police officer.

Barry Strickland appeared in Faulkner County Circuit Court on Monday. Strickland is charged in connection with the January 2013 death of Officer William McGary, who was struck and killed while directing traffic.

Faulkner County Circuit Judge Charles Clawson scheduled a Dec. 2 jury trial, though defense attorneys are asking for a change of venue.

A toxicology report showed Strickland had no alcohol or non-prescribed drugs in his system at the time of the accident. Defense attorneys say Strickland, who is an Iraq war veteran, had taken drugs that were legally prescribed to treat post-traumatic stress disorder.
