AUSTIN, Texas – Gavin Roberts, charged with murder in connection with the death of domain resident Justin Haden, was due to appear in court Monday morning.
Haden, 34, was reported missing from his Domain apartment on November 1. His body was found a month later near Ronald Reagan Boulevard and Interstate 35 in Williamson County.
Roberts, 26, is accused of killing Haden. Roberts was initially arrested in his home state of Colorado at the end of November and charged with manipulating a body. According to court documents, he later confessed to stabbing Haden and told investigators where to find his body.
Roberts was transferred from Colorado to the Travis County Jail last week. He was charged with murder and manipulating physical evidence from a human corpse in connection with Haden’s death.
Roberts was expected in court on Monday morning. KVUEs Natalie Haddad was in the courtroom.
Haddad reported that Roberts will be represented by Leslie Booker of Andrews Booker Law Firm. The judge presiding Monday put the Roberts case back on trial in two months to allow Booker to review evidence.
