An inmate who refused to go to court Wednesday was restrained in a special chair and wheeled into the South Central Regional Jail video room to face the judge on TV.
This time when Lamont Harris began a rant like the one that forced his removal from the courtroom in May, the judge just had the bailiff hit the mute button.
The trial will not start on Monday because his psychiatric evaluation is incomplete. It has been moved to Sept. 21.
Harris is charged with malicious wounding for the September 2011 shooting of Travis Bush in West Dunbar. Harris is already serving a 12-year prison term on a federal gun charge.
