A bond hearing was postponed Friday morning for a 73-year-old man accused of fatally shooting a woman outside a gas station in 2012.
A doctor who was scheduled to testify in the case of Frank Reeves was unable to do so.
Reeves, who uses a wheelchair, is charged with murder in the Dec. 4, 2012, slaying of 65-year-old Linda Hunnicutt outside the Murphy Express filling station on Gray Highway.
His lawyer, Veronica Brinson, filed a motion last week asking that a judge grant Reeves bond so he can live in an assisted-living home for veterans. The arrangement would provide Reeves with round-the-clock supervision, and he would be living alone with the person supervising him, according to the motion, filed in Bibb County Superior Court.
Judge Howard Simms denied a request in July that Reeves be released on bond to live in a Macon assisted-living facility. Also in July, Simms reinstated a bond order allowing Reeves to be released into the home of an adult family member who would provide 24-hour supervision. He added a provision allowing the supervision to be provided by an in-home care provider.
Police have said Reeves told them he thought Hunnicutt was trying to hit him with her car and he only meant to scare her when he fired his gun.
Hunnicutt was shot in the chest and died.
