New Trial Request Denied

A judge denies a request for a new trial from a man, convicted of fleeing the scene of a deadly hit and run crash involving a UK student.

Shannon Houser was back in court Friday morning His attorney claimed prosecutors had not provided enough evidence that Houser tampered with evidence after the accident, so Houser should be given a new trial.

The judge also denied a request to grant Houser work release.

Houser admitted to being behind the wheel of a truck that hit and killed UK student Connie Blount as she crossed the street last April.

Houser will be sentenced next month.
