Kinne is accused of shooting 32-year-old Dominique Clayton in the back of the head in her bedroom in May of 2019. She was found by her 8 year old child.

Kinne’s attorney has filed a motion with the court for a psychiatric evaluation.

Moore said, “on behalf of the Clayton family we are hoping the judge denies the motion. We feel this is a delaying tactic and find it suspicious a month before trial he files the motion. Matt Kinne should be held accountable.”
