Auburn tree poisoner fails to appear in court for hearing

Auburn tree poisoner fails to appear in court for hearingThe University of Alabama fan convicted of poisoning Auburn University’s oak trees failed to attend a hearing Wednesday on why he hasn’t paid court-ordered restitution. The Opelika-Auburn news reports Harvey Updyke, a retired Texas state trooper who lives in Louisiana, didn’t show up for a hearing before Lee County Circuit Judge Jacob Walker. The judge also gave prosecutors a month to review a letter from Updyke’s doctor saying the 71-year-old man wasn’t well enough to travel to Opelika for court.
