Larry Whaley is charged with second-degree murder, accused of fatally shooting 19-year-old Samantha Teeter on December 2, 2016. Authorities say Teeter was shot in the head in the hallway of an apartment building, dying two days later.
When officers first responded to the scene, they found Whaley talking to himself, saying what sounded like, “They were trying to break in,” police papers said.
A judge declared last month that Whaley is competent to stand trial, after the defendant had repeatedly claimed that his rights were being violated and that prosecutors were withholding evidence.
