Proceedings in local murder case postponed

Trials for both men accused of shooting and killing 17-year-old Alec McGlory in April 2013 have been postponed following additional court hearings this week.

Devin Fulner, 19, charged with second-degree murder and possession of a firearm after adjudication for his alleged role in McGlory's death, appeared in court for a second preliminary hearing Wednesday morning. Even though defense attorney Armando Mata and Comanche County Assistant District Attorney Mark Stoneman were both prepared to proceed, the defense moved for a continuance. Mata had previously objected to the state's request to add a weapon charge and remand the proceedings to a preliminary hearing, arguing the move would likely result in a delay of Fulner's trial.  Comanche County District Court Judge Emmit Tayloe informed Fulner that he intended to hear the case during this docket and asked him a series of questions prior to the defendant's waiving his right to a speedy trial. Since all parties were in agreement, the case was tentatively scheduled for the September docket and the preliminary hearing was rescheduled for June 16.
