Murder suspect gets new attorney
Attorney James Hunt, who was appointed to represent Kyle McKay in his upcoming murder trial, has withdrawn from the case, according to Wilson County District Court records. Judge Donna Rayes of the 81st Judicial District, during McKay’s March 13 court appearance, assigned Steven Barrera to represent the 18-year-old.
McKay is charged in the shooting death of 23-year-old Dakotah Reynolds of San Antonio, whose body was found Nov. 13, 2012, in an overgrown area of the Quail Run golf course near S.H. 123 north of Stockdale. McKay, who is still being held in the Wilson County Jail on $110,000 bond, is set to return to court April 30 for a docket call, with jury selection in his trial set for May 13.
Following the same schedule for both docket call and jury selection is 24-year-old Benjie Burke of Gilmer, who is charged with intoxication manslaughter with a motor vehicle in the Jan. 21, 2012, death of his passenger, 30-year-old Justin Gregory Jones. Burke was present in court March 11 for a pretrial hearing.
Also in court March 13 was Jordan Lewis. The 29-year-old is awaiting trial on charges of aggravated robbery, attempted aggravated kidnapping, escape, evading arrest or detention with a vehicle, and unauthorized use of a motor vehicle in connection with an April 26, 2012, escape from the Wilson County Jail. Lewis, who on March 5 was assigned Greg Wilson as his court-appointed attorney, is set to return to court for a pretrial hearing June 5, followed by a July 9 docket call. Jury selection in his trial is set for July 22.
