A jury trial has been postponed for a man accused of racing on a highway, manslaughter and aggravated assault.
Davin Blain Davis, 22, of Hallsville was on the 124th District Court trial docket Monday, but the trial will be specially set for a later date, a court administrator said.
Davis and co-defendant Chad Palmer Malone were charged in the Sept. 27, 2017, wreck on U.S. 259 North that killed two 17-year-old passengers in Malone’s car: Malone’s sister, Rylee Malone, and fiancée, Meshebia Johnson. Another woman, Christa Wilson, was severely injured when she was ejected after the pickup she was driving was hit by Malone’s car.
Malone pleaded guilty and is serving 12 years in prison for his charges.
Davis is being held in the Gregg County Jail on $935,000 bond.
