The trial of a man accused of waging an early morning firefight with area law-enforcement personnel could begin as early as May 13, according to Wilson County District Court records.

That is the day when jury selection is set to begin, ahead of the trial of 51-year-old Steven Edward Cole. He is charged with five counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon against a public servant, for his alleged role in the Jan. 15, 2011, incident outside his home north of Floresville.

Cole since has been under treatment at an area nursing home. His trial has encountered delays as attorneys for both sides awaited the completion of Cole’s insanity evaluation. The case was included in an April 30 docket call, along with these defendants:

•Benjie Burke III, 24, 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 is set to return to court July 16 for a pretrial hearing, followed by a July 31 docket call. Jury selection ahead of his trial is set for Aug. 12.

•Kyle McKay, 18, of San Antonio, who is charged with murder in the Nov. 13, 2012, shooting death of 23-year-old Dakotah Reynolds of San Antonio. McKay is set to return to court May 8 for a pretrial hearing, followed by a June 5 docket call. Jury selection ahead of his trial is set for June 17.

•Roxie Jean Talarico, 19, of Pleasanton, who was arraigned on one count of burglary of a habitation for her alleged role in a Jan. 15 incident in Floresville. She is set to return to court June 5 for a docket call. Jury selection ahead of her trial is set for June 17.

Also returning to court was former La Vernia Junior High School teacher Holly Rebecca Marsh, 35, who was sentenced to rehabilitation and probation following her 2011 pleas of guilty to charges of evading arrest or detention with a motor vehicle, assault of a public servant, resisting arrest or detention, and possession of less than 1 gram of methamphetamine. The charges stemmed from an arrest on March 10 of that year.

Records indicate that Marsh has satisfied the terms of the agreement with the court, which is why 218th Judicial District Court Judge Stella Saxon agreed to honor a motion for early termination.

Four criminal defendants also appeared before Saxon May 2 in Wilson County District Court, including:

•Joe Tellez, 24, of Floresville, who earlier pled guilty to one count of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon against a public servant, for his role in a Feb. 16, 2011, incident involving officers from the Floresville Police Department and the Wilson County Sheriff’s Office. Saxon sentenced him to five years in a state prison on this charge, which will run concurrently with a two-year state jail sentence on an unrelated narcotics charge.

•Maria Elena Wildenstein, 48, who was present in court for a pretrial hearing. The former La Vernia Junior High School principal is charged with misapplication by a fiduciary in connection with her alleged misapplication of 23 checks written from the school’s junior high activity fund. The alleged incidents started on or about Oct. 14, 2010, and ended on or about June 26, 2011. Records indicate she will return to court June 5 for a docket call, with jury selection ahead of her trial set for June 17.
