A court hearing is scheduled to take place in March for a man who killed a postal worker in 2001.

Court records indicate that both sides in Jason Weed's trial will meet on March 11 for the hearing. Back in 2012 he was found not guilty by reason of insanity in the murder of Robert Jenkins.

During the hearing a U.S. district court judge will determine whether to end the court ordered supervision for Weed. Previous reports from KTUL state that he was released after the courts decision and sent to a federal medical association.

Weed's case began when Tulsa Police were sent to an apartment complex near 31st and Riverside. At the scene they found that Jenkins had been randomly shot and killed. 

Witnesses told KTUL they heard screams and gunshots coming from outside their apartments. Homicide Sgt. Dave Walker stated that Weed shot Jenkins and proceeded to walk down the street firing the gunshots into the air.

Jenkins family talked about their frustration with the court's decision. "It's scary to think he might have another bad day and do this again," they added in an interview.

Weed previously moved to California and returned to Oklahoma in 2011.
