MEMPHIS, TN (WMC-TV) - A Tennessee prison guard made his first court appearance Tuesday to face charges that he killed two small-town postal workers.
Chastain Montgomery Sr. appeared before a federal magistrate judge Tuesday afternoon in Memphis.
During the brief hearing, Montgomery told the judge he plans to hire his own attorney, but does not know when that will happen, or who the attorney will be.
Montgomery faces two counts of killing a government employee and other charges in the Oct. 18 shootings inside the post office in Henning, Tennessee.
An indictment says the 47-year-old Montgomery fatally shot Judy Spray and Paula Robinson while robbing the post office with his son.
The son, Chastain Montgomery Jr., was killed in a shootout with police on Feb. 14. The elder Montgomery was jailed on charges related to the shootout before he was indicted last week in the post office shooting.
Montgomery will appear again in court on March 14th.
Meanwhile, the state search warrant for Montgomery's house, obtained by Action News 5, provides insight into why he was under investigation in the first place.
After Montgomery's son was shot and killed by police after a police chase, and he was arrested for tampering with evidence at the scene, the TBI filed a search warrant in Rutherford County to search for evidence of dye bombs and other items linking Montgomery to five different bank robberies.
In the return, investigators acknowledge the seizure of 25 items from various rooms in the house, including a piece of Montgomery's Tennessee driver's license, black knit gloves, a 303 bolt action rifle, assorted ammunition and a "Scream mask" in a garbage bag with miscellaneous other clothes.
