The second trial over the deadly Twin Peaks biker shootout could be scheduled for next month. 

Nine bikers died and dozens were injured following the shootout on May 17 of 2015 outside the Waco Twin Peaks restaurant.

Matthew Clendennen who was indicted on engaging in criminal activity charges had a trial date for next Monday. This week a judge appointed special prosecutors after McLennan County District Attorney Abel Reyna asked to be recused from the case. 

Clendennen's attorney, Clint Broden, filed a motion to reassert his right to a speedy trial and requested the court to set a trial date for the first week in December.

In addition, Broden, submitted two pictures to show prosecutors Clendennen was smoking an e-cigarette standing by himself in the patio when a physical fight was taking place in the parking lot. He added, when the shooting started, he was the first one to head to the bathroom for safety.
