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.
