Shannon J. Miles is charged with capital murder in the death of Harris County Sheriff’s Deputy Darren Goforth.
Miles’ criminal history includes an arrest in 2012 following a fight at a homeless shelter he was staying at in Austin.

Frederick says Miles was declared competent in February 2013, but the charge was dropped against Miles after the victim could not be located.
