Pastor Terry Greer to stand trail for murder

Acccused murder, pastor Terry Greer, had his competency hearing cancelled and will instead face trail for murder on July 21, 2014.

Dr. Terry Greer, the former pastor of Gardendale-Mt. Vernon United Methodist Church, will not go through a hearing to determine if he is mentally competent, and will instead go to trial on charges of murder and attempted murder.

A competency hearing had been set for last week, which would determine whether or not Greer should be committed to a mental institution and have his criminal charges dropped. The winter storm caused that hearing to be moved to Feb. 19, but on Tuesday Jefferson Circuit Judge Tommy Nail cancelled that hearing and set a trial date of July 21.

This good news indeed! It had looked like Pastor Greer would escape justice.
