Judge declines to dismiss double murder charges

BURLINGTON, Ky. (AP) - A judge in northern Kentucky has refused to dismiss murder charges against a former Warren County Sheriff's deputy accused of killing his parents four years ago.

Boone Circuit Judge Tony Frohlich concluded that no evidence was withheld from 42-year-old Michael Moore's attorneys and that lab reports and notes were properly given to the defense. The Kentucky Enquirer reported that Frohlich issued his ruling after a 90-minute hearing on Friday.

Moore's trial, expected to take seven weeks, is set to begin Aug. 12 at the Boone County Justice Center. The trial has been delayed at least three times for various issues, including testing on DNA evidence. Moore may be sentenced to death if convicted of two counts of murder for killing his parents, Warren and Madge Moore.
