Court date pushed back for man accused of killing deputy Goforth

HOUSTON - Channel 2 Investigates has learned that Shannon Miles, the man accused of shooting and killing deputy Darren Goforth, will not be in court this week.

Originally, Miles was scheduled for a competency hearing on Thursday after undergoing another psychiatric evaluation.

However, according to Miles' attorney, the court date will now happen March 8 because of scheduling issues with doctors.

Miles is charged with capital murder in the execution-style killing of Goforth in 2015.

He was found mentally incompetent to stand trial last year.

Since then, he has undergone treatment in attempts to restore his competency.
