By Michael Corcoran

Singer-songwriter Billy Joe Shaver will face charges of aggravated assault and unlawful carrying of a weapon April 5 at the 54th District Court in Waco.

Shaver is accused of shooting Billy Coker in the cheek outside Papa Joe’s nightclub in Lorena the night of March 31, 2007. Here’s more on the case.

Shaver will be represented by superstar Houston attorney Dick Deguerin, who made a national name when he represented another Waco native, David Koresh, during a 1993 standoff with federal agents.
