NICHOLASVILLE - The murder case against Dwayne Nave continued its slow pace Friday, with attorneys and the judge meeting behind closed doors to discuss disagreements over expert testimony each side wants to use at trial.
Prosecutor Tom Lockridge, defense attorney David Marshall and Garrard Circuit Judge Hunter Daugherty talked for nearly an hour in the judge's chambers before announcing in open court they still have issues to settle before the case can be scheduled for trial.
Nave, the former Garrard County emergency management director, is charged with murder, assault and driving under the influence of intoxicants in the April 2007 crash that killed Williard Quinn of Parksville and seriously injured Kevin Reed of Stanford.
Nave, 43, was driving his county-owned emergency vehicle when the accident occurred on U.S. 27 near Bryantsville. He has pleaded not guilty.
