New documents filed for Eaton’s defense

GLASGOW — In preparation for an April 29 scheduled trial date, Barren County Sheriff Chris Eaton’s defense attorney filed four documents Tuesday that go into some detail of how the defense wants the trial to proceed.

Defense attorney J. Guthrie True, of Frankfort, entered a pretrial memorandum, proposed exhibit list, proposed jury instructions and proposed voir dire questions in the United States District Court Western District of Kentucky court records Tuesday.

Original versions of all four documents were filed in August 2012, before more charges were filed against Eaton in a second superceding indictment on Nov. 14, 2012. While the voir dire questions and the exhibit list remained unchanged and only needed to be re-adopted and incorporated, the new charges required supplements to be added to the jury instructions and pretrial memorandum.

The pretrial memorandum describes counts 12 and 13 of Eaton’s indictment, that he allegedly struck Billy Randall Stinnett in the groin on Feb. 24, 2010, and that following the incident he and an employee of the sheriff’s office knowingly deleted a photograph that documented the alleged assault.

Read the full report in Wednesday's print or e-edition of the Glasgow Daily Times.

More information about the newest court documents will be included in the Thursday, March 7, edition of the Glasgow Daily Times.
