OGDEN — In something of an anticlimax with the many admissions to the shootings, Matthew David Stewart was ordered bound over for trial on all charges in a Jan. 4 shootout with police.
Second District Judge Noel Hyde set arraignment for Wednesday in concluding Stewart’s three-day preliminary hearing Friday.
Stewart, 38, faces the death penalty if convicted in the shooting death of officer Jared Francom, 30. Stewart is also charged with shooting at seven other officers that night, wounding five.
Stewart and his family members have claimed in the media he did not know the nine members of the Weber-Morgan Narcotics Strike Force who entered his home at 3268 Jackson Ave. with guns drawn, serving a marijuana warrant, were police.
