Charges multiply in wreck that injured officer

BY CORIANNE EGAN cegan@paducahsun.com

A California man who was involved in wreck that critically injured a Paducah police officer was in court Thursday morning to be arraigned on additional charges related to the incident.

Police say Terry Murray was fleeing in a van he stole from a downtown lot in early November when he ran a stop sign and T-boned the cruiser of officer Austin Guill. Guill suffered major injuries to his back, legs and hips and has not returned to work. Murray was arrested later that night.

A trial date has been set for May for a first round of charges issued against Murray. Those charges - first-degree assault, first-degree fleeing or evading the police, theft by unlawful taking under $500, giving an officer a false name, leaving the scene of an accident, first-degree criminal mischief, and theft of a motor vehicle registration plate or decal - include five felonies and one misdemeanor.

On Tuesday, Murray heard four charges added. He pleaded not guilty to third-degree burglary, and theft by unlawful taking $10,000 or more, both felonies, along with two counts of attempted theft by unlawful taking over $10,000, which are misdemeanors.

Murray's attorney, Carolyn Keeley, said she would wait to see if the prosecution would like to combine the charges into one trial.

In total, Murray faces 10 to 20 years in prison if he is convicted on the felony of first-degree assault. Theft by unlawful taking of items over $10,000 is a felony that could result in five to 10 years in prison. The additional felonies and misdemeanors would only add time to the sentence Murray faces if convicted.
