Man on trial for murder will represent himself

Medford, Ore. — A Rogue Valley man facing murder charges is heading to trial without counsel. After firing his last 2 attorneys, Robert Davies-Calhoun is now moving forward with just an advisory attorney who can answer questions.

Davies-Calhoun is accused of shooting and killing Douglas Mitchell Spaur outside a Central point convenience store back in November.

He initially refused to appear in court Friday morning until the judge ordered him to come, he was then uncooperative and combative in court.

“If you interrupt me, I’ll ask you again, if you interrupt me, I’ll ask you again,” Judge Timothy Barnack told Davies-Calhoun.

“Okay then we’re just going to be sitting here all day because I’ve already given you an answer,” Davies-Calhoun responded.

“I don’t have anything else going on,” Barnack says, “I’ve got nothing going on all day. It’s my job to sit here.”

At issue was whether Davies-Calhoun would allow the court to receive his medical evaluation records. His murder trial is scheduled to begin October 31st.
