Suspect swallowed razor blades ahead of trial for Fort Worth officer's death, officials say

Fort Worth PD Officer Garrett Hull was killed while trying to confront three robbery suspects in 2018.

A judge in Tarrant County delayed the trial of a man accused of killing a police officer after the accused man tried to kill himself by swallowing razor blades.

Timothy Huff is in a Fort Worth hospital, but it is not clear how serious his injuries are.

Huff faces trial on capital murder charges for the 2018 murder of Officer Garrett Hull, who was shot as he and other undercover officers confronted three men suspected in 17 bar robberies.
