Mingo County Circuit Clerk Lonnie Hannah confirmed that a bond hearing for 29-year-old Timothy Kennedy scheduled for June 26 is now on hold, pending a mental health evaluation.
Kennedy is charged with first-degree murder in the June 2 shooting death of West Virginia State Police Sgt. Cory Maynard.
Police say Kennedy shot and killed Maynard, who was responding to a shots fired call, in what appears to have been an ambush set up for responding officers. Maynard was captured after police say he stole a car and a seven hour manhunt.
Kennedy is also the suspect in the June 2 shooting of 39-year-old Benjamin Baldwin of Matewan. Police said to expect more charges against Kennedy.
Mingo County Prosecutor Duke Jewell previously said all charges beyond the first-degree murder charge will be addressed after the evidence is fully analyzed.
Kennedy remains jailed without bond, pending the outcome of the mental health evaluation.
