High school coach's rape case moves to circuit court

Staff report

Kwen Trice, the suspended Murray High School assistant boys basketball coach, was arraigned Wednesday in Calloway Circuit Court on 10 counts of third-degree rape involving two cases.

Trice, 30, appeared before Circuit Judge Dennis Foust with attorneys Mark Bryant and Emily Roark.  Trice's attorneys waived formal arraignment and entered a not guilty plea on his behalf.  

Trice's case was initially set for a preliminary hearing on Wednesday but he was indicted by information on May 1.  An indictment by information allows a case to bypass the grand jury and go straight to circuit court.  A preliminary hearing is a probable cause hearing to determine if there is enough evidence to send a case to the grand jury.

Trice has been employed three years as a teaching assistant in the alternative education program within the Murray Independent School District and as a basketball coach.

Trice was arrested April 11 on five charges of third-degree rape and released on bond.  He was later charged with an additional five charges of third-degree rape in a second case and was arrested and jailed under a $20,000 cash bond.  

Trice's case is set for a status hearing on June 13.
