The trial of a Corbin man, who is charged with killing two people last year, is being postponed until next year over the objection of the defendant because all the lab results won’t be completed until late this year.
Paul Parsons, 47, was indicted on July 17, 2017, on two counts of capital murder in the June 7, 2017, deaths of Denver Nicely 47, of Corbin, and Joshua C. Wernicke, 29, of Keavy. He was also indicted on one count of first-degree burglary in connection with the incident that occurred just outside of the Corbin city limits.
In March, Parsons had requested a speedy trial, which typically requires that a trial date be set within six months of that date.
