While the murder case against Jack Caldwell Sr. remains in legal limbo, a judge ruled Tuesday that the wrongful death civil lawsuit against him can move ahead at a quickened pace. Boyle Circuit Judge Darren Peckler sided with attorneys for Bonnie Trachsel, who argued that the civil case against Caldwell, which has been on hold pending the outcome of the criminal case, should be expedited because of the continuing delays that have stalled the murder case for nearly three years. A hearing is scheduled for Aug. 9 to place the civil case on a faster track.

HARRODSBURG James Crews, charged with the murder of Darrin Maddox, pleaded not guilty during an arraignment in Mercer Circuit Court Tuesday afternoon. Crews allegedly shot Maddox at about 12:45 a.m. Jan. 14 outside Kentucky Burley Tobacco Warehouse on Marimon Avenue. Maddox died of a gunshot wound to his mid-back. There apparently was an altercation between the two men inside the warehouse because investigators found blood there. Maddox was bleeding from wounds to his head when he knocked on the door of a house across the street from the warehouse, but a medical examiner's report said he died from the gunshot.
