Man charged with murders due in court

BURLINGTON, Ky. - A former Northern Kentucky police deputy accused of killing his parents more than three years ago was back in front of a judge Wednesday afternoon for his pretrial hearing.

Michael Moore's trial isn't until August 2013, but he faced a hearing at the Boone County Justice Center Wednesday. The Union man is charged with shooting and killing his parents, Warren and Madge Moore, in their home in June 2009. Police say he also shot himself and claimed someone came into the house firing shots.

He 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 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.

In January, a judge ruled Moore could serve as his own co-counsel during his murder trial.

Moore told Judge Anthony Frohlich he had the "utmost confidence" in his attorneys, but wanted to have a voice in his trial.

He's been in jail since he was arrested more than three years ago.

Moore's father was the city administrator and former mayor of Union.

Moore is scheduled to appear in court again on August 12.
