LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - The case against a man, accused of gunning down a Lexington gas station clerk, has now been waived to a grand jury.
18-year old Travis Bredhold faced a judge on Thursday morning in a Lexington courtroom.
Bredhold is accused of murdering Mike Patel at a gas station on Alexandria Drive back on December 9th. Lexington Police arrested him a day later inside Fayette Mall. Bredhold was armed with a gun at the time.
In court on Thursday, Bredhold's attorney ask for his client to undergo a mental health evaluation. The judge presiding over the case agreed to allow a preliminary test for Bredhold to see if he needs a complete mental evaluation.
Bredhold is being held without bond. He is charged with Patel's murder, along with robbery, drug, and weapon charges.
