FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — A biker indicted in the fatal shooting between bikers and police outside a Waco, Texas, restaurant last year has asked a court of appeals to order a local judge to set a trial date.
Cody Ledbetter, who is charged with engaging in organized criminal activity, filed the request late Thursday with the 10th Court of Appeals in Waco.
District Judge Ralph Strother in December scheduled Ledbetter’s trial for May 31, but less than a month later, postponed it indefinitely. The request for the court of appeal’s intervention comes weeks after another local judge in Waco postponed a trial for one of the 177 bikers arrested after the shooting.
Nine people were killed in an apparent confrontation between rival motorcycle clubs.
