LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- The Louisville man charged with killing two members of a homeowners association is moving closer to a trial on murder charges.
Mahmoud Yousef Hindi appeared briefly in Jefferson Circuit Court Monday for a hearing. Judge Fred Cowan said attorneys can set a trial date at the next hearing on March 4.
Assistant Commonwealth's Attorney Ryane Conroy says prosecutors are moving closer to completing discovery and will likely send some ballistics evidence to a lab for testing. Those tests could take two or three months.
Hindi told police he walked into a homeowners association meeting in September and fatally shot 73-year-old David Merritt and 69-year-old Marvin Fisher. Hindi has said he was locked in a months-long dispute with the association over the home where he lived.
