Curtis Reeves: Florida theater shooting suspect, waives speedy trial

A court hearing was held Wednesday for Curtis Reeves, a 71-year-old retired Tampa police captain accused of shooting and killing a man earlier this year in a Wesley Chapel theater.

A judge denied bond for Reeves last month.

Reeves is accused of shooting Chad Oulson, 43, as movie trailers rolled Jan. 13 inside the Cobb Grove 16 Theaters. Nicole Oulson, Oulson's widow, was shot in the hand.

According to law enforcement, Reeves opened fire during an argument over text messages Chad Oulson was sending.

Tampabay.com reports Reeves waived his right to a speedy trial. It says his next hearing will be July 9, with a trial possible this fall.
