LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) -

The man charged with killing two people during a stabbing attack at an East Texas hospital was excused from court today after he complained about an injury.

23-year-old Kyron Templeton is charged with capital murder and three counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon for his knife attack at Good Shepherd medical center in Longview last November.

It's called status docket at the 124th District Court, dozens of defendants all seeking case disposition to determine which cases will plead and which will go to trial.

Among the defendants, was Kyron Templeton.

"We put them on a status docket to determine where discovery is, also if offers have been made and a large number of those parties end up working their cases out and they never see a trial docket," says 124th District Court Judge Alfonso Charles.

Templeton stayed emotionless, waiting.

"On some of the major cases where there may be stuff that has to come from a laboratory, DNA, we know where those are," Charles says.

Unknown to everyone in the courtroom, Templeton was injured. He was removed from the courtroom. How and what happened to him has not been explained.

Templeton made no deal, and he did not return to the courtroom.

He has been rescheduled for July court appearance.

The status of Templeton's injury and how it happened has not been released.
