BELTON — A Bell County grand jury Wednesday indicted Marvin Louis Guy on a charge of capital murder in the death of Killeen police Detective Charles “Chuck” Dinwiddie.
Bell County District Attorney Henry Garza said the indictment came after lab tests of evidence were completed and the prosecution was in a position to go before a grand jury with the charge. Guy, 49, of Killeen, is accused of shooting at Killeen Police Department SWAT officers while they were serving a narcotics search warrant at his apartment early May 9.
Four officers were shot. Two were protected by body armor. Odis Denton was struck in the leg. Dinwiddie was hit in the face and died May 11.
Guy was indicted on three counts of attempted capital murder May 21. He pleaded not guilty to those charges June 5.
If convicted of the capital murder charge, Guy would face a mandatory sentence of life in prison without parole or the death penalty.
Garza said the death penalty is under consideration and an announcement will be made at a later date on whether the prosecution will move forward in seeking capital punishment.
Guy is in Bell County Jail, now held on a $4.5 million bond. He has a pre-trial hearing today.
