LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A judge has dismissed a felony indictment
against a former high school football coach charged in the death of
a 15-year-old player who collapsed during practice.
Jason Stinson's attorney entered a not guilty plea on his behalf
Friday on a new wanton endangerment charge. However, minutes later,
the judge threw out that charge because she said prosecutors failed
to give the defense an opportunity to present evidence before the
Prosecutors said they would refile the same charge with a new
grand jury. A felony reckless homicide charge against Stinson is
still pending connected to the death last August of Pleasure Ridge
Park sophomore Max Gilpin, who died three days after the practice
when his body temperature reached 107 degrees.
