Trial starts for former coach in player death

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A Jefferson County judge has thrown out
about 1,000 pages of statements and evidence in the trial of a
former high school coach charged in the death of a player last
year.

Circuit Judge Susan Schultz Gibson said Monday the documents
were turned over to defense attorneys too close to the time of
trial, which is just getting under way. Jury selection will be
going on tomorrow in the trial of former Pleasure Ridge Park coach
David Jason Stinson.

Stinson is charged with reckless homicide and wanton
endangerment in the death last August of 15-year-old Max Gilpin.

Attorneys will begin trying to seat a jury of 15 Tuesday
morning.
