January 2022 murder trial reset

The trial for the murder of 30-year-old Markkhon Antkwon Heath of Greenville, which was due to begin later this month, has now been scheduled for spring.

Heath pleaded not guilty to the murder charge, as well as to a separate count of aggravated assault in connection with shooting another person on the same day.

During a January 13 hearing in the 196th Circuit Court, Judge Andrew Bench rescheduled the trial, which was scheduled to begin on January 30.

The jury’s choice is set for May 8.

Heath was charged in March 2022.

Greenville Police said that at 9:56 p.m. on January 3, 2022, officers were sent to 4215 Spencer St. due to a gunshot wound. Two people were shot. One of them died, the other was taken to the hospital. The aggravated assault indictment alleged that the second victim had been shot in the arm.

Heath was released on $175,000 bail this week.

This is likely to be a busy few months for the Hunt County District Courts, which are currently running two capital murder trials, two murder trials, and a manslaughter trial scheduled for Feb. 20. to June 5th.
