Murder For Hire Case: Interview With Defense Attorney

A Wichita County murder for hire case is being delayed, again. David Everett Stevens was supposed to appear in the 89th district court Thursday afternoon, but his bond reduction hearing was delayed for a third time.

Newschannel 6 spoke with his defense attorney, Ronnie Molina, and asked him when he felt Stevens will get his day in court.

"If you are in jail--confinement--there is a priority. Your cases, a person's case, would be seen and heard sooner than if someone were not incarcerated. In our case, David is actually still with a $2.5 million dollar bond and in jail, so therefore his case is still given priority."

Right now the bond is set for Stevens at $2.5 million. The Wichita Falls man is accused of trying to hire a hit man to kill his wife's boyfriend. His hearing is pushed back to March 3rd. The case may go before a jury this year.
