There isn’t going to be any movement in the murder trial for Trey Noah any time soon.
Shelby Moore and Brandon Harber are charged with first-degree felony murder as well as tampering with physical evidence, a second-degree felony. They were both arrested in June 2010 and are now released on bond.
From the Blanco News: “An appeal of a motion to suppress is making its way through the appeals court, Harber’s lawyer, Bernard Campion, said in a phone interview, and the cases are at a standstill until the court can make a ruling. With the court’s mile-long docket, the process could take months.”
In Nov 2009, Trey Noah went missing. His remains were found five months later. Shelby C. Moore and Brandon L. Harber were arrested and murder charges were filed. Those charges were dropped in March 2014 due to legal issues involving their Miranda rights. In Oct 2015, Moore was sentenced to nine years but only for tampering with the body (hiding it) under a plea deal struck back in August.
It is still unclear who really killed Trey Noah. An affidavit by Gillespie County Sheriff’s Deputy Brian Pehl quoted Moore as saying in a June 10, 2010 interview that Brandon L. Harber argued with Noah and then shot him at Moore’s home in Kendall County, Texas.
“Moore told me that neither he nor Harber sought any medical care for Noah after the shooting,” and that the two used Moore’s pickup to dump the body, Pehl said in the affidavit. Conflicting information appeared in the papers about who shot Trey. Both defendants pointed to each other.
