HUTTO (KXAN) — A trial date has been set for the man who allegedly ran over and killed Hutto Police Sgt. Chris Kelley. The trial date has been set for Aug. 22, 2016.
Colby Ray Williamson is facing a first degree murder charge for the June 24, 2015 incident. The scene unfolded on Herrera Trail in Hutto when Williamson refused to stop and led officers on a chase. Sgt. Kelley then found Williamson on Wren Cove.
In the affidavit for his arrest, Williamson, 26, told detectives he took control of Sgt. Kelley’s vehicle and backed over the officer during a struggle for the steering wheel.
When other officers pulled up, they saw Kelley struggling with the suspect. One officer said he saw “Kelley fall from the driver side door of his patrol vehicle and saw the patrol vehicle run over his body.”
The pre-trial hearing is scheduled for June 27.
