Judge Appoints Public Defender For Garrett Dye

The Todd County teen accused of killing his 9-year old adopted sister, Amy Dye, will go to trial March 24, 2014. Garrett Dye appeared in Todd Circuit Court Wednesday morning, where he and Judge Tyler Gill discussed his attorney.

Dye's father told the Judge the teen would need a public defender, and after a lengthy discussion about finance, Judge Gill appointed the public defender's office to the case. He also set a trial date for March 24, 2014.

Garrett Dye was arrested within days of the death of Amy Dye in February 2011.  He confessed to the beating death, but in June 2013, that confession was ruled inadmissible by the Kentucky Supreme Court and his 50 year sentence overturned.   It is unclear if the hard evidence obtained by Dye's confession, including his clothes and the hydraulic jack handle, will be allowed in the new case.
