Subpoenas sent in capital murder trial

GREENVILLE — A start of testimony has not yet been set, but prosecutors have begun issuing subpoenas for witnesses to appear in the pending trial of a Greenville man, charged with capital murder involving a 2011 shooting death.

Hunt County District Attorney Noble D. Walker Jr. Thursday issued 79 subpoenas for witnesses to testify in the trial of Micah Crofford Brown, charged in connection with the death of Stella Michelle “Doc” Ray. Brown has pleaded not guilty.

Jury selection in the case began March 27. It was unknown if a jury had been chosen, and a date for the start of testimony had not been scheduled as of Friday.

Prose-cutors have an-nounced they intend to seek death by lethal injection as a punishment for Brown, should he be convicted of capital murder.

Ray, a Caddo Mills school teacher, was shot and killed in Greenville on the night of July 29, 2011.

Brown, 33, remains in custody at the Hunt County Jail in lieu of $1.5 million bond.
