Eric Kweder's presence was waived during his preliminary hearing Monday afternoon, due to a behaviorial issue while in custody. During the hearing, Kweder was described as being "combative" and "acting out."
Kweder was represented by a public defender who filed a motion for review of incompetence or his present mental state. A judge granted the motion and the case will be continued at 2 p.m. Thursday, April 18 to review Kweder's progress.
Kweder was arrested and charged with 2nd degree murder Friday, Nov. 30 after FCPD received a report of a suspicious death on Hydrangea Drive in Franconia. The victim — 32-year-old Andy Lun Yun — was struck with a blunt object, according to police. Hours after receiving the report, police found Kweder about five miles from the crime scene after a police chase.
According to information and photos on Kweder's public Facebook page, he was once in the military and studied exercise and sport science at the University of the Cumberlands in Williamsburg, Ky.
Whether Yun and Kweder were involved in a confrontation or disagreement before the incident hasn't been revealed by police or during the recent hearing. Kweder is also being charged with destruction of property with intent. Kweder is currently still in custody and there is no bond for his case.
