Accused Child Killer Asks For More Time

Attorneys say they need more time to look at evidence in a child murder case out of Bourbon County.

Lewis "Buck" Ballard was back in court on Thursday morning.

He's accused of killing six-year-old Wesley Mullins inside Mullins' grandfather's garage in Paris. Ballard was staying with the grandfather at the time.

On Thursday, Ballard's attorney said she needed more time to review evidence that is just back from the state crime lab. That evidence includes two tests: blood spatter and DNA.

The judge granted that request.

Ballard will return to court on September 12th for another hearing.
