Hunter trial delayed

Local

Mental health experts say the inmate accused of beating a correctional officer to death at the Miller County Jail is not fit to proceed his trial.

Tramell Hunter is charged with capital murder in the death of Lisa Mauldin.

A judge ordered Hunter to have a mental evaluation after Hunter’s lawyer entered a not guilty plea by reason of mental disease or defect.

Hunter’s lawyer says the trial will resume once mental experts are done with further evaluations.

Hunter faces death or life without parole if found guilty.
