    Judge sets next court date for man accused of killing Provo police officer

    By Ashley Stilson
    Daily Herald

    The next time Matt Frank Hoover appears in 4th District Court, more than a year will have passed since he reportedly shot and killed a Provo police officer in a parking lot in Orem.

    Hoover, 41, was charged with aggravated murder after a fatal confrontation with Provo and Orem police officers in January near a Bed Bath & Beyond near University Parkway in Orem.

    Judge Kraig Powell scheduled the next court status hearing for Feb. 10, where prosecuting and defense attorneys will decide whether or not they are ready for a preliminary hearing set for April 15-17.

    Although Hoover has three separate criminal cases pending against him, Powell decided on Monday to wait until the murder case is reviewed before moving forward with the other charges.

    Officers were attempting to arrest Hoover when he reportedly shot Master Officer Joseph Shinners on Jan. 5, 2019. The Provo officer returned fire and died from the shooting later that night at a local hospital.

    Hoover was on felony probation when the shooting occurred for a third-degree felony conviction of joyriding in March 2017.

    He is currently facing charges for aggravated murder, a capital offense; assault against a police officer, theft of stolen property, possession of a dangerous weapon, all second-degree felonies; failure to stop at command of police and two counts of possession of a controlled substance, both third-degree felonies.

    In a separate case, he is charged with failure to stop at command of police, a third-degree felony, and giving false identity to police, a class C misdemeanor.

    Hoover remains in custody at the Utah County Jail without bail.

    Hearing set for man charged with killing Provo officer Joseph Shinners

    Coronavirus precautions have caused delays in case

    A 3-day hearing has been set for the man who prosecutors say had expressed a desire to kill police before he fatally shot a Provo officer last year.

    Fourth District Judge Kraig Powell on Monday scheduled the November preliminary hearing for Matt Frank Hoover, 42, to begin on Nov. 10.

    The hearing will be held nearly 2 years after officer Joseph Shinners was killed. A judge will determine whether theres enough evidence against Powell for him to stand trial.

    Hoover is accused of shooting and killing Shinners, 29, one of several officers who tried to arrest him on warrants in an Orem parking lot on Jan. 5, 2019. Police say he had intended to die in a shootout with police.

    Hoover has not yet entered a plea to aggravated murder, a capital offense. If convicted, he could face the death penalty.

    His attorney, Mary Corporon, said Hoovers defense team has begun an inquiry into legal competency to determine whether he can work with his lawyers and understand the case against him. But pandemic precautions, including restrictions on visits to the Utah State Prison, have made it difficult for her to speak confidentially with her client and for defense investigators to do their job, she said.

    Prosecutors say Hoover posted derogatory messages toward police hours before the deadly confrontation. Hoovers ex-wife told investigators that he talked daily about not going back to prison and getting into a shootout with the police and that they would go out like the characters in (his) favorite movie, Natural Born Killers, according to charging documents.

    Shinners returned fire that day, striking Hoover in the abdomen.

    Hoover was hospitalized for nearly 2 weeks before he was booked into the Utah County Jail. He faces other felony charges including assault on a police officer and possession of a firearm by a restricted person, following a criminal history of mostly drug-related crimes.
