I have a question about the legal process- I was assaulted

I have a question about the legal process- I was assaulted in my home by my ex fiancé last year- he was indicted by a grand jury for domestic assault felony charge and we have been moving ever so slowly through the court process and we're finally to the trial phase as he had refused the plea bargain- he had bonded of of jail in December after being in jail for about five months - and in the time from December till August he was up to more trouble which wnded in him contacting me directly which wa a violation of the conditions of bond and a warrant was issued and he later that night cut off his Gps ankle monitor. After several weeks he was apprehended by the us marshalls and he now has several new charges in the same county - now for fraud and false statement to procure credit - each have a bond set for $10,000- once he's done here he will have to go to another county to deal with a sexual assault charge there and his violation of probation on felony dwi - my question is for the charges in this county (Tarrant). He had an initial appearance and my assault case for lumped in with the other two and now all three are lumped together for a court date next month for a consultation- I feel like I'm starting back at square one where we were almost done and aboit to go to trial. The da states the other two charges are unindicted - so I don't understand that exactly and I don't understand what will happen with the domestic violence case - I'm just ready to be done and move on and forget this whole nightmare with this man-
