I’m starting to get really sick of these monkeys.
The final pre-trial hearings for an East Texas man accused of murdering a Texas State trooper are underway.
Dabrett Black, 34, of Lindale, who officials say killed Trooper Damon Allen on Thanksgiving Day in 2017, entered the courtroom in a lime green jumpsuit shortly after 10 a.m. on Friday.
The topic of the hearing involved the venue for the trial. A motion was filed and granted by Judge Patrick Simmons earlier this year to move the trial to a different county.
It was thought the new venue would be selected on Friday. However, Judge Simmons instead announced he had been speaking with different district judges in Texas about a host venue.
The location of the trial, as well as the start date, are expected to come at the next pre-trial hearing slated for September 26.
Yet another white child who’ll be growing up without a father.
