Judge Denies Part of Dunlap Motion

Smithland, KY – A judge has ruled Kevin Dunlap's defense attorney won't have access to recordings of the prosecution's witnesses. During a pre-trial hearing today in Livingston County, Judge C.A. "Woody" Woodall ruled that Commonwealth Attorney G.L. Ovey is required to share any exculpatory information with defense attorney James Gibson. But Woodall denied Gibson's request for any tape recordings Ovey made during conversations with prospective witnesses. Kevin Dunlap is charged in the October murder of three children and the rape and attempted murder of their mother in Roaring Spring. His next pre-trial conference is scheduled for September 11th.
