5:15 MORNING UPDATE: Motion filed to limit evidence in Eaton case

GLASGOW — A new motion was filed Monday in the federal case involving Barren County Sheriff Chris Eaton.

Eaton's attorney, J. Guthrie True, filed a motion in limine, which is a motion requesting that the court limit evidence in a case.

True is asking that testimony or opinions from a Kentucky State Police Forensic Laboratory analyst be excluded from evidence, along with her reports, photographs or other evidence concerning "bloodstain pattern analysis and blood splatter," according to the motion filed in the United States District Court of the Western District of Kentucky at Bowling Green.

Eaton faces federal charges of deprivation of rights, falsifying reports and giving false information to federal investigators in a case stemming from the February 2010 arrest of Billy Randall Stinnett. He is facing the charges along with Deputies Aaron Bennett, Adam Minor (who has pleaded guilty in one count of the case) and Eric Guffey.

For the full story on the motion, read Wednesday's print or e-Edition of the Daily Times.
