McIntyre pleaded not guilty to capital murder in Walker's death, and also pleaded not guilty to another count of aggravated robbery in the shooting of Beloate.

The sentencing portion of McIntyre's trial will continue Monday. He faces five to 99 years or life in prison on each charge.

While under house arrest awaiting trial in March 2017, McIntyre fled after cutting off his ankle monitor and was captured in New Jersey in June 2017.
