Man on trial for murder halts proceeding by rubbing feces on his face

A man charged with killing a New Orleans police officer in 2015, halted jury selection by rubbing feces on his face after a restroom break. 

According to Nola.com, 35-year-old Travis Boys, currently heading to trial for the 2015 killing of NOPD Officer Daryle Holloway, left the courtroom for a short bathroom break during jury selection proceedings and returned with feces on a napkin. 

The paper reports that witnesses say Boys began rubbing his face with the feces shortly after he emerged from the restroom.  The judge in the case ordered a halt to the proceedings and a new competency evaluation for Boys to be done. 

Boys pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity on the charges in this case. The trial was expected to start next Monday. 

Our media partners at the Advocate reports that police said Boys was being transported to jail on June 20, 2015, to be booked for firing a gun at his wife when he shot and killed officer Holloway inside the officer’s SUV. Boys then escaped and remained at large for 24 hours before his capture in the Lower 9th Ward, authorities said.

For a detailed look at the proceedings so far in Boys case, read more from The Advocate.
