Judge refuses to dismiss Twin Peaks shooting case

Demands political ad be pulled

A visiting judge has refused to dismiss the case against Matthew Clendennen, who was arrested after the Twin Peaks shootings that killed 9 people and injured several more in May of 2015.

Clendennen took the stand during the Monday morning hearing, saying the lack of a speedy trial has been detrimental to his life.

He is also upset because McLennan County District Attorney Abel Reyna is using his picture in his political ads for Tuesday's primary election.

The judge refused to dismiss the case against Clendennen, but he did order Reyna to pull the political ads.

He told Reyna he should be ashamed of using Clendennen in his political campaigns to win in the primary.

The judge set October 15, 2018 as the start date for Clendennen's trial.
