An Owensboro man facing a murder charge in a September 2018 shooting death has been found competent to stand trial.

Travon E. Anthony, 32, appeared before Judge Jay Wethington for a competency hearing Thursday morning. He pleaded not guilty in the shooting death of 52-year-old Todd Raley.

His next court appearance is April 9.

Anthony was indicted November 2018 with murder, convicted felon in possession of a handgun and intimidating a participant in the legal process.

The Owensboro Police Department said Raley was shot several times Sept. 10, 2018 in the 3200 block of West 2nd Street.

Anthony turned himself in and has been booked at the Daviess County Detention Center since Sept. 17, 2018. His bond is $150,000 cash.

Court records show his court-appointed attorney is local public defender Matt Meier.

Meier could not be reached for comments Thursday.
