Judge Jose Lopez told lawyers they need to make more progress in obtaining Keith Loving’s medical records.
In a mental observation hearing for Loving, the prosecution dropped the case against him involving a BB gun. He is still being held on a charge of second-degree murder for allegedly striking a man after hijacking a city bus last May.
The mental observation hearing could not proceed, because the medical records were not ready to be presented. This was due to the defense changing counsel in April and not deciding what records to send to the prosecution.
Lopez then ordered all of the medical records to be released to the prosecution from St. Elizabeth Hospital.
The next mental observation hearing is set for June 16.
