The latest hearing for the man accused of murder in Savannah Spurlock's death has been delayed until 2020.

David Sparks faces counts of murder, tampering with physical evidence, and abuse of a corpse in the case.

A hearing was scheduled for Friday in Garrard County. Sparks was not in court.

The hearing was pushed back 60 days to Jan. 3, 2020. Defense attorneys say they need more time to look at the evidence in the case.

Kentucky State Police say Spurlock went to Sparks' home on Price Court in Garrard County on the night she disappeared Jan. 4. She was seen on surveillance leaving a Lexington bar. Sparks told authorities he fell asleep, and when he woke up, Spurlock wasn't at the home.

That rug and garbage bags matched the material that was found in Sparks' home. Police believe Sparks took the rug and garbage bags from his home, buried her in those, and bound her hands and feet.

Friends of Savannah Spurlock were in the courtroom.

“I plan to be at every court date regardless of what I have going on even if it’s class or work. I plan to be there just because again, I know she would be here for me if it were switched," said Kala Hamblin.
