Suspected Waffle House gunman Travis Reinking will now wait three more weeks before appearing in court.

Reinking was scheduled to appear in court Monday, but the judge decided to push back his court date to June 1 because Reinking will be undergoing a mental evaluation.

Reinking is accused of killing four people and injuring several others in the shooting last month. He is charged with four counts of criminal homicide, four counts of attempted murder and one count of unlawful gun possession in the commission of a violent felony.

Reinking is being held in jail without bond, meaning he can’t pay his way out. He is being represented by public defender John Wing.

Deputy District Attorney Roger Moore, Assistant District Attorney Tammy Meade, Assistant District Attorney Jan Norman and Assistant District Attorney Ronald Dowdy will be prosecuting the case.
