HARRODSBURG - When Lee Anderson goes to trial for threatening Judge Darren Peckler, it will take place in Anderson County, probably in February or March.
That was the news from a meeting Friday between Special Judge Thomas P. Jones, Commonwealth's Attorney Richie Bottoms and Anderson's public defender, Travis Thompson.
The exact trial date for the threat case won't be set until after Dec. 9, when Anderson will be resentenced for the 2006 murder and robbery of retired teacher Louise Pulliam.
Anderson pleaded guilty to the murder last year and Peckler sentenced him to life in prison without possibility of parole. But the state Supreme Court vacated that sentence last month, ruling that it was too harsh because Anderson was a juvenile when he was charged with the murder.
