    A case involving an abuse charge previously issued against a Bloomfield man has been dismissed. The case against Ethan Tingle, who police had charged with criminal abuse in April following a call from hospital doctors regarding a child injured in a fall, was dismissed without prejudice according to a document filed in court Wednesday morning.

  • Roberts trial likely to see delay again as special prosecutor takes over

    Closure for Rasheed Wickliffe’s family will likely be delayed again along with the trial of his accused killer.

    The Kentucky Attorney General’s office is taking over prosecution of the case after Commonwealth’s Attorney Terry Geoghegan recused his office because of a potential conflict that arose recently.

    “In our hearts, we just feel like it is starting over again,” said the Rev. Monica Mitchell, Wickliffe’s aunt and spokesperson for the family.
