• Judge recuses self from Roby lawsuit

    The judge presiding over the wrongful termination and defamation case filed by a former Bardstown cop against the city recused himself Wednesday and then offered to testify.

  • Witnesses prove tension around deal that turned deadly

    The arguments wrapped up just after 11 a.m. Thursday.

  • Prosecutor: This was a set-up

    Special Prosecutor Jeffrey Prather told a Nelson County jury Tuesday that the death of Rasheed Wickliffe in Bloomfield on Dec. 1, 2015, was not an accident and was not a “drug deal gone bad.”

    “This was a set-up,” Prather said in his opening statements in the murder trial of Alexander Cole Roberts.

    Prather said prosecutors would present evidence that Roberts intended to rob Wickliffe and that he had referenced using violence against his mark.
