Michael Wayne Steen II

BELTON — The state is getting closer to trying a man accused of a murder just outside Killeen city limits in 2013, but the suspect, who already is serving a life sentence on another charge, will have to be transported from a state prison in Huntsville to face trial.

On Friday in the 264th Judicial District Court, a pre-trial hearing was set for July 11 for Michael Wayne Steen, 35, of Copperas Cove. Steen was sentenced in the same court in May of last year to life in prison on a first-degree felony drug charge, according to Texas Department of Public Safety records.
