DA No Longer Pursuing Death Penalty Against Man Who Shot And Killed Detective During No-Knock Raid


BELTON, TEXAS — The Bell County District Attorney’s office is no longer pursuing the death penalty against Marvin Guy. In 2014, a no-knock drug raid was being executed on Guy’s home, during which Guy had fatally shot Killeen Police Detective Charles Dinwiddie during an exchange of gunfire between Guy and police.

Guy remains in Bell County Jail where he has been held since May 2014. Guy was charged with capital murder and attempted capital murder. On September 9, 2022, Texas filed a Waiver of the Death penalty and requested for a speedy trial. Since he has been in custody his trial date has been reset multiple times.

Early morning on May 9, 2014, Killeen police conducted a no-knock drug raid at Guy’s home. Gunfire was exchanged between the officers and Guy, and four of the officers were hit.

Guy didn’t realize it was police breaking into his home when he fired his weapon in self-defense, according to his attorney.
