Somerset Man Gets New Trial

A Kentucky man convicted of sexually abusing three young girls will get a new trial.

Elijah Burns of Somerset was sentenced to 70 years in prison after being found guilty in a trial two years ago. The state Supreme Court overturned the verdict saying the lower court allowed improper testimony from a doctor.

Burns' new trial is scheduled in May.
