Wheels of Justice grind slowly in Kenielle Finch case

Prosecution awaiting DNA results in Kenielle Finch case

At Monday's pre-trial conference, prosecutor Ryane Conroy said they are still awaiting results of DNA evidence taken back in August.

"Actually, I can't comment specifically on how we would use the DNA until it's filed in the discovery, but that is something as I stated on the record that it was a shirt and some swabs from the vehicle," said Conroy.

The trial is set to begin on December 1.

I know this isn't CSI but waiting since August?

The sorry sack of shit should just plead guilty and get all this over with.

In the meantime: Driver accused of killing 2 girls sued

The parents of two girls killed in a hit-and-run last summer have filed a lawsuit against the man who in jail awaiting a criminal trial in the case.

The lawsuit, filed in Jefferson Circuit Court today, is against Kenielle Finch, who is charged with driving the car that ran over 5-year-old Claudia Wadlington and her friend, 4-year-old Riley Lawrence, as they walked to a swimming lesson. The suit also names Keynisha Butler, who lent Finch the Pontiac Grand Am that struck the girls.

"These individuals have caused us to pay very dearly for their irresponsibility," said Sarah Lawrence, Riley's mother and one of the parents who brought the lawsuit.

Its not like he has anything but that is not really the point.
