Murder Trial Delayed After Judge's Ruling



The trial of a Hopkinsville man accused in the 2011 murder of Susan James has been indefinitely postponed for the time being. A pre-trial conference has now been scheduled for April 8th in the case against Tremel Smith, who is accuse of killing James and then leaving her body along Christian Quarry Road. Reports indicate the decision to postpone the trial came at the request of Commonwealth's Attorney Lynn Pryor, who wants to appeal an evidentiary ruling in the case by Circuit Judge John Atkins.

Pryor is claiming the evidence excluded by Judge Atkin is crucial to her case against Smith. The trial had been scheduled to start Thursday.
