A Camdenton area man accused of a cold case murder dating back to 2006 could learn his fate today in a Camden County courtroom. A jury trial was scheduled to begin in the first-degree murder case of David W. Smith. Smith is accused of killing Shawn Eric Spencer in an, apparent, dispute over drugs despite, reportedly, no evidence being found from the alleged crime, including Spencer’s body. However, the attorney for Smith requested that the trial be stricken in favor of a plea hearing which is, instead, scheduled to be taken up this morning. Presiding over the hearing will be Circuit Judge Kenneth Hayden. Also, an Osage Beach man is scheduled to be in Camden County Circuit Court this week for jury trials on, at least, three different cases filed against him. One of the cases, a felony domestic assault in April, alleges that a victim was able to escape the house on Happy Hollow Road during the early morning hours. Upon arrival by law enforcement, Travis Allen Dale then refused to come out as a standoff continued for over six hours before he surrendered without any further incident. Jury trials are also scheduled to begin today for Dale on separate charges of Burglary and Resisting arrest, and a felony check charge. Dale has been in custody, on no bond, since September for an alleged bond violation.
