Michael Moore trial: Another day, another delay in parents murder case

BURLINGTON, Ky. -- Another day, another delay in the case of a former sheriff's deputy accused of killing his parents in Northern Kentucky.

Michael Moore's murder trial won't begin until Thursday morning because some motions remained unresolved as of Wednesday afternoon.

Moore is charged with shooting his parents, Warren and Madge Moore, in June 2009 inside their home.

Investigators said Moore also shot himself and claimed another person was shooting inside the home.

He has been in jail since he was arrested four years ago.

During earlier hearings, Moore pleaded not guilty to murder, tampering with evidence, falsely reporting an incident and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

Moore is a former Warren County Sheriff's Office deputy who made headlines in 2004 when a grand jury indicted him for taking marijuana from the evidence room and for making meth in his garage.
