Garrett Dye Trial Moved To Logan County



Todd Circuit Judge Tyler Gill is ordering the Garret Dye murder re-trial be moved to Logan County. During a Tuesday hearing in Todd Circuit Court, Judge Gill cited media coverage in Todd and Christian counties as the main reason for the move.


   
Gill says Dye's attorney Stephanie Ritchie had planned to present evidence showing the effect the media has had in Todd County.



Judge Gill agreed to move the trial to Logan County Circuit Court where he also serves as Circuit Judge. 

Following the change of venue, Commonwealth's Attorney Gail Guiling called witnesses to testify about evidence found in the case before and after the confession that the Kentucky Supreme Court determined that Kentucky State Police coerced. Guiling questioned Kentucky State Police Detective Lonnie Cavanaugh, who headed the case, about the Sunday before Dye was arrested and the confession was made.


   
Guiling asked Cavanaugh about what evidence they would have been looking for without the coerced confession.


   
Judge Gill asked for a transcript of the confession and will address the motion again on February 4th.

Dye is accused of killing his 9 year-old sister Amy Dye in 2011. He confessed to the murder in November of 2011, with the Kentucky Supreme Court overturning his guilty plea in June of 2013.
