DADECITY, Fla. ( - There was a brief hearing in the Curtis Reeves case in Dade City Wednesday morning, although Reeves did not attend.

Reeves, a retired Tampa Police Captain, is charged with shooting and killing Chad Oulson at a Wesley Chapel movie theater in January. Investigators say the shooting stemmed from an argument over texting.

A trial date was expected to be set at this hearing, but Judge Pat Siracusa set a pre-trial hearing for July 9th, instead.
