NEW PORT RICHEY, Fla. (AP) — A former Tampa police captain charged with second-degree murder in the shooting death of another man at a Florida movie theater is scheduled for a bond hearing.

A judge will decide whether to grant 71-year-old Curtis Reeves bail on Wednesday. Reeves is accused of killing 43-year-old Chad Oulson after getting into an argument over texting in the Pasco County theater.

Judge Pat Siracusa also could rule on whether video showing the altercation and shooting can be made public.

An external hard drive containing hours of surveillance video was physically handed over to defense attorneys Tuesday during a hearing regarding the video evidence showing the January shooting.
