Church shooting defendant seeks public defender

| September 19, 2012

Mahmoud Yousef Hindi, the doctor accused of fatally shooting two men during a homeowners association meeting, formally pleaded not guilty in Jefferson Circuit Court on Monday and requested that a public defender be appointed because he is indigent.

And Jefferson Circuit Court Judge Frederic Cowan ordered that Hindi continue to be held without bond at least until a public defender is appointed and there is a hearing.

Cowan set the next court date for Oct. 22.

Hindi was indicted last week by a Jefferson County grand jury on two charges of murder and seven counts of wanton endangerment.

The county commonwealth's attorney's office asked then and again Monday he be held without bond, given that it is a possible death-penalty case and prosecutors believe he may have the ability to post the $1 million bond that had originally been set .

When Judge Cowan asked him if he owned a home, Hindi responded that he didn’t.. Assistant Commonwealth's Attorney Ryane Conroy said after the hearing that Hindi’s children owned the home he lived in at 8412 Running Spring Drive.
