Capital murder suspect pleads not guilty


Capital murder suspect Joel Moyers pleaded not guilty at his arraignment hearing Monday morning.

His attorney asked for and was granted more time to file motions. A February 19 motions hearing was set.

The judge also gave the district attorney until that hearing to decide if this will be a death penalty case.

Moyers is charged with capital murder for the September 2012 shooting death of Brandon Hydrick. Moyers remains in jail without bond. His bond was revoked with the capital murder indictment.

Moyers spent several days in the hospital after that indictment. He overdosed after learning about the indictment.
