Court Date for Crossbow Killer Pushed to June

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Justin Trammel, who was the first juvenile in Arkansas to serve time under the state's blended sentencing option, is to have a court date in June for threatening to kill the mother of his child.

Trammel, who is now 22, was 15 when he was convicted of using a crossbow to kill his father. Trammel was released when he was 18.

Trammel is accused of threatening to kill Chelsea Jabusch on December 29. The court date was pushed to June 20 when Trammel got a new lawyer.

Trammel was also in the news when on New Year's Day he was pulled over while with another convicted killer, Jonesboro school shooter Mitchell Johnson.

During the traffic stop, Trammel, who was driving Johnson's van, was given a ticket and Johnson was cited for having marijuana and a firearm.

Trammel has a June 18th misdemeanor court date.
