New trial date set for Jimmy O’Neal Spencer

GUNTERSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) – A new trial date has been set for a man accused of killing three people in Guntersville.

Jimmy O’Neal Spencer was charged in 2018 with killing 7-year-old Colton Lee, his great-grandmother Marie Martin and his neighbor Martha Reliford.

A trial originally scheduled for April 26, 2022 continued after the court was told tests were to be performed on Spencer that would not be completed until then, according to court records. The documents did not say what type of test was performed on Spencer.

Court records show Jimmy O’Neal Spencer’s retrial will take place on October 17, 2022 at 9 a.m. at the Marshall County Courthouse.

As previously reported, Spencer is charged with seven counts of capital murder. Prosecutors are asking for the death penalty.
