Timothy Claytor has been released from a Bowling Green hospital and is scheduled to appear in court for his trial on Wednesday, May, 28 at 9 a.m.
Claytor’s trial was postponed last week soon after it began due to his high blood pressure and hospitalization. Circuit Judge Tyler Gill rescheduled the proceedings to allow Claytor time to recover.
Claytor appeared in court Thursday, May 22, telling of an appointment he had for Tuesday, May 27. There is a scheduled review for Tuesday, May 27 to confirm he will be ready for Wednesday’s court date.
Claytor was arrested Aug. 31, 2012, after he allegedly shot and killed 46-year-old Dale Holloway of Russellville the night before. He was indicted on murder charges Friday, Sept. 7, 2012, which is a Class A felony, and if convicted, carries a sentence of 20 years to life in prison.
The Logan County Sheriff’s Department was called out to Claytor’s home on T. McReynolds Road at approximately 10:22 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 30, 2012, in response to a disturbance involving a weapon. Upon arrival, officers discovered Holloway unresponsive in the front yard with multiple gunshot wounds, which Claytor delivered. According to the sheriff’s office, Holloway came to the home of Claytor looking for Lori White, a female associate of Holloway. It appears, says police, that some type of argument took place between Holloway and Claytor that resulted in the death of Holloway.
Claytor claims he shot Holloway in self-defense.
