Judge orders murder suspect’s medical records released

Judge Jose Lopez signed a subpoena for 30-year-old Keith Loving’s medical records to be released from St. Elizabeth hospital.

On May 3, 2016, the defendant allegedly hijacked a city bus and struck 43-year-old Anthony Payne who died from injuries sustained during the collision.

The hospital has until June 30 to release his medical records and then Loving’s attorney can propose redactions to the records before July 7. His attorney did state that if there is a risk assessment in the records that he wants that redacted as well.

Payne is next due to appear in court on July 21.
