New charges expected in Trice case

Staff report

New charges are expected soon in the case involving former Murray High School assistant boys basketball coach Kwen Trice.

According to Cirris Hatfield, assistant commonwealth attorney, new evidence will be presented to a Calloway County grand jury on Oct. 2. 

"The new evidence does not involve both victims and does not involve a new victim," Hatfield said.

Hatfield added that the new evidence will include forensic data that needed to be removed from computer devices. 

On Monday Trice appeared with attorney Emily Roark in Calloway Circuit Court and the case was continued until Oct. 13 to see if an indictment is returned by the grand jury.

Trice was initially 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 arrested again.   According to the Murray Independent School District attorney David Buckingham, the first set of five charges stemmed from an alleged involvement with a Murray High School student.

According to Roark, the potential new indictment concerns an alleged sex abuse charge involving one of the same victims.

Trice had been employed for three years as a teaching assistant in the alternative education program in the Murray school system and as a basketball coach.  According to Buckingham, Murray Superintendent Bob Rogers  notified Trice in early May that his contract had not been renewed.  

Trice remained jailed in Murray and had no bond set Monday.
