A TRIAL FOR THE TAMPA POLICE CAPTAIN WHO OPENED FIRE IN A MOVIE THEATER --

CURTIS REEVES IS CHARGED WITH SECOND DEGREE MURDER AFTER HE OPENED FIRE IN A TAMPA MOVIE THEATER BACK IN JANUARY.

AFTER REEVES TOLD HIM TO STOP TEXTING DURING THE PREVIEWS OF THE MOVIE.

A COURT HEARING FOR REEVES TRIAL WILL HAPPEN THIS WEDNESDAY --

REEVES REMAINS IN A TAMPA JAIL AFTER A JUDGE REFUSED HIS REQUEST FOR BAIL.

DADE CITY, Fla. - The trial for a retired Tampa police captain accused of murder in the January movie theater shooting of a fellow patron could happen as early as this fall.

A court hearing scheduled for Wednesday should settle the question of a trial date in the coming months for Curtis Reeves Jr., who is charged with second-degree murder in the Jan. 13 shooting of 43-year-old Chad Oulson of Land O'Lakes.

Oulson was shot in the chest during an argument over Oulson's refusal to stop texting his daughter's babysitter during movie previews. Oulson's wife, Nicole, suffered an injured left ring finger, which was grazed by the bullet. Reeves attorneys say their client shot in self-defense.

Reeves remains in the Pasco County jail after a judge denied his request for bail in February.

WEATHER-WXWALL


TUESDAY'S RAIN PROSPECTS

Scattered showers and thunderstorms continue moving across Southwest Florida this evening. Compliments of the cloud cover left over from storms early on Monday, temperatures in the afternoon were held at bay, only topping out in the 80s, well below what's considered seasonal.

Overnight tonight temperatures are expected to retreat into the low to mid 70s.

The weather setup for Tuesday looks a bit similar to Monday. Again we will have steering winds with a south and southwesterly component to them. Added to the fact that higher resolution forecast models place some showers in the Gulf of Mexico early on Tuesday, we'll need to account for the chance for some rain in the morning, mainly along the coastline.

As the afternoon progresses, the inland areas of the state should bear the greatest coverage of showers and thunderstorms. Toward Tuesday evening, it is a possibility that some showers or isolated storms could push a touch closer toward the US 41 corridor.

For the duration of the work week, a more typical July weather streak looks to get set up with late afternoon and evening showers and storms. Temperatures from Wednesday onward look seasonal in the afternoons topping out near 92 degrres. Return to index of stories...
