Venue Change For Teen Suspect Who Threatened Judge

A young Mercer County man, already serving a life sentence for murder, was back in court on Wednesday.

Louis Lee Anderson is facing a charge of threatening the judge who heard his murder case.

The 19-year-old was sentenced to life in prison without parole for 25 years. He was just 17-years-old when he stabbed 72-year-old Louise Pulliam to death inside her home in Harrodsburg.

Anderson pleaded guilty to the murder on the day his trial was scheduled to start.

Anderson reportedly threatened Judge Darren Peckler as he was being taken back to jail after sentencing. The Mercer County jailer reported the threat.

On Wednesday morning, a judge agreed to move the new trial to Lawrenceburg. No trial date has been set because the special judge hearing the case has to work with court officials in Anderson County to find a date that works for them both.
