Guam - Keith Garrido may be slated for trial next week for the murder of a Barrigada woman, but as of Monday, defense has filed a motion to drop the charge.

According to court documents, assistant public defender Stephen Hattori filed the motion to drop the murder charge as the indictment fails to address Garrido's mental state.

As we've been reporting, Garrido is accused of killing Nancy Mafnas in 2012 after he burglarized her house. While he was detained, Garrido also reportedly escaped from a Department of Corrections vehicle while being transported to a hearing. During his escape, he's accused of assaulting and robbing another woman in her home. Defense's motion will be addressed in court on Wednesday.
