ATHENS, Ala. (WAAY) - A date for a bond hearing is set for capital murder suspect Joel Moyers, according to court documents filed Friday.

That bond hearing is set for February 19.

Moyers is set to go to trial June 10 for the murder of Brandon Hydrick, 26.

Moyers is charged with capital murder, reckless murder and firing into an occupied vehicle.

Hydrick and his brother were lost and driving down Fennell Lane in Limestone County in the early morning hours of Sept. 29 when Moyers fired a shot from an assault rifle at the truck, killing Hydrick.

Authorities say Moyers claimed he thought the two were up to no good and fired a warning shot when they refused to stop.
