Former KY high school coach re-indicted

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A Jefferson County grand jury has
re-indicted a former high school football coach on a second charge
in the death of a player.

The indictment handed down Tuesday charges David Jason Stinson
with wanton endangerment in the death of 15-year-old Max Gilpin,
who collapsed at practice last August and died three days later.

Stinson already was facing a reckless homicide charge in
Gilpin's death. He has pleaded not guilty.

Stinson originally was indicted on the wanton endangerment
charge last week, but a judge dismissed it after Stinson's lawyers
argued the grand jury was not told Stinson wanted to testify.

A judge ruled Tuesday that prosecutors could seek to re-indict.

Stinson's trial is scheduled to begin on Aug. 31.
