Iraq Vet Charged With Killing Guardsman To Go On Trial

WICKLIFFE, Ky. (AP) - Western Kentucky prosecutors have dropped
a manslaughter charge against a 16-year-old in connection with the death of a Kentucky National Guardsman.

The charge against William Corey Adams was dropped Friday as part of a plea deal in which Adams pleaded guilty to receiving a stolen gun, wanton endangerment, tampering with evidence, possession of a handgun by a minor and possession of a defaced firearm.

The deal was made in exchange for Adams' testimony in the trial of an Iraq war veteran scheduled for Monday in Bardwell.

Nineteen-year-old Cody Morris is charged with murder, wanton endangerment and tampering with evidence in the death of 18-year-old Casey Lee Hall, who had just returned from boot camp. Hall died of a gunshot wound last year at his home in Bardwell.
