Man Jailed As Youth For Killing Found Fit For Trial
BENTONVILLE (AP) — An Arkansas man who was convicted 20 years ago of killing his father with a crossbow has been found mentally fit to stand trial on unrelated charges that he seriously injured his daughter in a vehicle wreck last summer then tried to take a gun from a sheriff’s deputy.
The Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reports that Justin Trammell was found fit for trial Monday (Jan. 14).
At a hearing, Trammell pleaded not guilty to charges of attempted murder, domestic battery, endangering the welfare of a minor and driving while intoxicated.
He’s being held on $250,000 bond in the Benton County jail.
Trammell was 15 when he shot his father with a crossbow in 1999. He served time in a juvenile facility before being placed on probation.
