Two defendants bound over to stand trial in 1983 murder of Timothy Coggins


Frankie Gebhardt and William Moore Sr., the two men charged with the 1983 murder of Timothy Coggins, were on Thursday morning bound over to stand trial in Spalding County Superior Court.

Georgia Bureau of Investigation Special Agent Jared Coleman was the lone witness in the preliminary hearing held before Chief Spalding County Magistrate Court Judge Rita Cavanaugh.

Gebhardt and Moore Sr. were arrested earlier this year, and Griffin Judicial Circuit District Attorney Ben Coker is hopeful their trials will be heard in the summer of 2018.

The GRIP will post a detailed article of today’s preliminary hearing later today.
