Local murder suspect denied trial dismissal
The Nicholasville man accused of killing a Jessamine County business man, asked for his trail to be dismissed due to missing paperwork.
David Peel was arrested in 2014 in relation to a 2008 case were a man’s body was found burning inside a truck.
“Mr. Peel only knows that a substantial amount of evidence relating to the testimony of critical witness and key events is missing,” the motion said. “Quite simply, (Peel) does not know what evidence is missing, how it was lost, or why it was destroyed.”
During the hearing on Nov. 10, concerning the motion to dismiss the case, the judge denied Peel’s request to drop the case, according to the judge’s calendar.
The judge set a trial date for March 13, 2017.
