A Travis County grand jury has indicted a man accused of killing his girlfriend on bail jumping charges after authorities believe he fled when a judge allowed his GPS monitor to be removed.
State District Judge Julie Kocurek set a bond of $2 million for Kevin Waguespack, an usually high amount, once he is arrested.
He remained wanted Thursday and was the target of a search by the U.S. Marshals Service.
Waguespack is accused in the death of Catherine Dyer in 2015, and a decision in April by state District Judge Tamara Needles to remove the GPS tracker has been sharply questioned by prosecutors after he failed to show up at a court hearing last week.
Needles ordered the device removed based on a request from Waguespack’s lawyer, who cited employment reasons. But prosecutors say they were not given the opportunity to fully respond to the request before Needles signed her order.
