Homicide

Suspect in killing of priest, beating of another clergyman set for court appearance in Phoenix

A homeless ex-convict who police say beat a priest with a metal rod and fatally shot another clergyman in their Phoenix church is set for a court appearance.

Gary Michael Moran is held on $1 million bond. He is accused of first-degree murder, burglary, and armed robbery, among other charges. He has not yet entered a plea and is set for court Monday morning.

Authorities say Moran broke into the Mother of Mercy Mission rectory on June 11 and attacked the Rev. Joseph Terra with a metal rod. Police say Moran then wrestled a gun away from Terra, who had retrieved the weapon from his bedroom, and fatally shot the Rev. Kenneth Walker.

Moran was arrested June 15 after police say his DNA matched forensic evidence collected from the crime scene.
