LONDON, Ky. (AP) - A pre-trial hearing is scheduled tomorrow for
accused killer Tony Hodge in Laurel District Court. Hodge, who is
charged with murdering an unknown person near Lily Pits in December
2003, was arraigned Friday in Laurel District Court. His attorneys
entered a not guilty plea on his behalf.
Hodge is scheduled for trial October eighth in Madison Circuit
Court for the Big Hill murder of Margaret Jackson and assault of
Mitchell Turner. Madison Commonwealth's Attorney David Smith says
the trial will continue as scheduled, even in light of the new
Jackson and Turner were shot and stabbed multiple times during a
robbery at Jackson's home. Another London man, Douglas Hall, also
is charged in that murder.
London is 63 miles south-southeast of Lexington.
