Trial was briefly delayed to June 27 in Christian Circuit Court Wednesday in the case against Robert Torian, the man accused in the fatal shooting death of Terrill Moore.
Trial had been set to begin on June 6, but some lingering issues involving evidence had defense attorney James Chamberlain concerned they would be able to be adequately prepared for trial by that time if they’re still waiting for more evidence to be turned over.
Judge Andrew Self agreed and pushed trial back to June 27, but also set a separate hearing for June 7, where they will go over any remaining issues or motions.
Chamberlain says the bulk of the evidence they requested has been turned over, but they still need to examine phone records and find answers to the question about car keys that were possibly found during the investigation.
The original arrest warrant from Hopkinsville police says Torian and Moore had been in an argument while both were passengers in a vehicle on McHenry Street in August of 2019. Torian was in the back seat when he allegedly exited, opened the front passenger door and fatally shot Moore.
