Capital murder trial of Willie Maurice Hervey Jr. pushed back

WICHITA COUNTY, TX (KAUZ) -

A continuance was called Monday morning in the capital murder trial of Willie Maurice Hervey Jr. in Wichita Falls because of evidentiary concerns.

Jury selection was set to begin at 10:30 a.m. in the 89th district court.

A pool of 60 jurors were called to potentially hear the case.

The new trial date is set for January 9th.

Hervey was charged in 2014 with the murder of Mark Hawkins.

In April of 2014 Wichita County Sheriff Deputies were called out to a home where they found 20-year old Hawkins dead on the front porch.

Officials said he had a gunshot wound to his left side.

Deputies said Hervey is accused of robbing Hawkins and then shooting him.

    "I had mixed feelings you know, you're sad because you've lost a great person but you're excited for him," Faith Baptist Church Pastor Craig Lile said. "He was 98, or 99 years old and he was going home where he had been looking forward to being. Last few years he talked about how eager he was to be back with his wife."
