The arraignment was held in Cabell County because Mingo Circuit Judge Michael Thornsbury recused himself, citing his friendship with Crum.
Weston told reporters that Maynard is still recovering from seven gunshot wounds and likely would require follow-up medical care in jail.
Mines shot and wounded Maynard after a chase that ended in Delbarton. Maynard had been recovering in Cabell Huntington Hospital since the shooting.
Authorities said Maynard shot Crum twice in the head at close range with a .40-caliber Glock pistol as Crum sat in his car eating lunch in Williamson on April 3.
Maynard also is represented by attorney Glen Conway. Weston said he and Conway only recently spoke to Maynard and wouldn't say what they discussed.
"It's sad that somebody is dead, but I don't know exactly what happened yet," Weston said. "It's too early to get into that."
Maynard belonged to a Mingo County boxing club as a teenager and was coached by Crum. A motive in the slaying has not been released. Authorities have said they don't think the shooting was related to Crum's anti-drug campaign.
Weston told the judge he wants to delay a speedy trial to give the defense and prosecution time to gather evidence. In turn, Mingo County Prosecuting Attorney Michael Sparks said he would provide Maynard's attorney with police reports and witness statements, which he said he doesn't normally do.
Weston said he has tried several murder cases, including one that led to a not-guilty verdict and another that led to a plea on a lesser charge.
