A Calloway County Circuit Court judge has denied a motion to dismiss a tampering with evidence case against Jerry Wayne Walker, Junior. Judge Dennis Foust said in an order issued today that the case does not violate Walker’s rights. Walker faces tampering charges for allegedly writing letters that interfered in the commonwealth attorney’s investigation into a 1998 dorm fire at Murray State’s Hester Hall.
The Murray State student who pleaded guilty to possessing bomb making materials in his dorm room may re-enroll at MSU. David M. Wilson admitted having materials used in making pipe bombs to blow up tree stumps at his family farm. MSU Assistant Vice President of Communications Catherine Sivills says, if he re-enrolls Wilson will be on probation for a year, be banned from living in or visiting any dormitories and must complete 60 hours of community service. Sivills says Wilson has not confirmed if he will return to the University.
