Rashad Charjuan Owens did not appear in court Tuesday for a brief status hearing in Austin.
The Killeen resident is charged with one count of capital murder, four counts of felony murder and 24 counts of aggravated assault after allegedly running his car into a South By Southwest music festival crowd March 13.
Owens also is accused of driving while intoxicated and fleeing police.
His next court appearance is Sept. 9, but it could be more than a year before his trial, officials said.
