Lawyer believes Meehan could participate in video hearing next week
HIGH EARTH, Ind. (WTWO / WAWV) – The man charged in the fatal shooting of Terre Haute Police Detective Greg Ferency may be able to participate in a first video hearing next week. This is according to the latest progress report filed by defense attorney Shane Meehan.
Meehan was transferred from a hospital to a prison last week. Court documents do not indicate which prison he is being held in, but Friday’s situation report says the prison has video teleconferencing capability.
Meehan’s attorney said in a progress report on Friday that his physical condition was improving but he was suffering from memory loss. His lawyer says if his condition continues to improve at the same rate, he may be able to fully participate in an in-person court hearing the week of August 2.
Meehan faces a charge of premeditated murder of a federal officer accused of shooting and killing Ferency outside an FBI field office in Terre Haute. Authorities said Meehan went to hospital after being shot twice in an exchange of gunfire.
