Mickey Patterson Scheduled to Appear in Court

The man accused of murder in a civil lawsuit, Mickey Patterson, is scheduled to be in Lubbock court this week. However, he missed a hearing on Friday.

The families of Kay Harreslon and Peggy Merimon filed a lawsuit against Patterson in June. The wrongful death suit claims Patterson lured both women from the Lubbock State School in the summer of 2006.

The suit goes on to allege that Patterson held Harrelson and Merimon against their will, and ultimately killed them and hid their bodies. Harrelson's body was found. Merimon is still missing and presumed dead.

Court records reveal that Patterson was scheduled to give an oral deposition following Friday's hearing in court. Administrators tell NewsChannel 11 that he did not show up.

The visiting judge for the 99th District Court granted a motion to compel Patterson to give that deposition.

The next hearing in this case is scheduled for Wednesday. Patterson has been named as a "person of interest" in the Merimon-Harrelson criminal case. He has not been charged.
