HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) - A West Virginia man accused of gunning down Mingo County Sheriff Eugene Crum plans to ask a judge for bail June 17.
 
Tennis Melvin Maynard also faces a tentative Oct. 21 trial. The 37-year-old received the court dates at a Wednesday arraignment.
 
Maynard is accused of fatally shooting Crum on April 3. The sheriff was parked in downtown Williamson.
 
After a short vehicle chase, authorities say Maynard pulled a gun on a deputy who then shot and wounded him. Maynard wore hospital garments at Wednesday's hearing.
 
A grand jury indicted Maynard on first-degree murder, attempted first-degree murder and fleeing charges.
 
Investigators have not discussed a possible motive.  Maynard's father has said his son has mental health issues.
 
Crum's widow was appointed sheriff after his killing and she attended Maynard's arraignment.
