LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – The man accused of killing two members of a homeowners association missed a court hearing on Monday because he was hospitalized after a scuffle with corrections officers Saturday night.

A jail spokesperson said Mahmoud Hindi was "being argumentative" with the officers while in his cell prior to scuffle. Hindi was taken to a hospital on Sunday after complaining of injuries he suffered during the incident.

A judge cited "health issues" as the reason Hindi missed his scheduled court appearance on Monday.

Hindi, a former doctor, is awaiting trial for the September 2012 shooting deaths. Investigators say he had been having property disputes with his homeowners association and fatally shot the two association members during a meeting at a church.
