Once again, classes were disrupted in Daviess County, Kentucky due to a bomb threat. A suspicious note was found at Owensboro High School and police say enough is enough.
An old murder case from Warrick County is resurfacing as the convicted killer is asking to be set free.
68-year-old Mark Jervis is serving a 60 year sentence after a jury found him guilty of murdering 33-year-old Terri Boyer.
Back in 1994, the murder trial hinged on DNA evidence. This was the first case in Warrick County that used DNA in criminal court.
That first trial ended in a hung jury.
In 1995, a new jury convicted Jervis of murder.
Officials say Boyer was out drinking with Boyer's husband, brother, and brother's girlfriend when they got into an argument.
Family members tell 14 News that Boyer got out of their truck and said she would get a ride back to Hatfield from someone else.
That's when prosecutors say she went to Frenchie's - a tavern in Newburgh where she met Jervis.
During the trial, the prosecution says Jervis never took Boyer home.
Jervis admitted to picking up Boyer at Frenchie's, saying he offered her a ride home, but that his car broke down and she got out before returning to the tavern.
The prosecution says there was an altercation and Jervis strangled Boyer and then left her along the fence between the Newburgh Cinema and a daycare.
There were several key witnesses that testified against Jervis, including Brad Allen who owned the Newburgh Cinema at the time. He discovered Boyer's body on the morning of August 15, 1993.
He says it's an image he'll never forget.
"She was laying face down with her head kind of up on the fence and her right arms bent up over her back," Allen said. "I didn't think it was real because her arm wasn't in a normal position. It was bent way back over her back like she'd just been yanked out of the back of a truck or something."
Prosecutors say it wasn't a truck that dumped her. It was the old maroon station wagon driven by Jervis.
Another key witness, Terry Timberlake, says he was washing his car just before midnight on August 14. That's when he noticed the beat up maroon station wagon sitting in the parking lot.
Timberlake says he felt very uneasy. The next morning he told his wife about what had happened.
"We were on our way to a picnic in Newburgh where we heard about the body being found and then right away, I knew that I had been a part of it," said Timberlake.
The body was Boyer's, found naked from the waist down.
The next morning, Boyer's brother, Jerald Adams, received a phone call that she had been strangled.
He went looking for her killed and found key pieces of evidence in a garage can outside Jervis' apartment.
"Her electric bill, a pencil and an ink pen from her church," Adams said. "A black ribbon that I noticed she had worn several times in her hair. It was one of her favorites."
Nearly two months after the murder, Indiana State Police arrested and charged Jervis with murder.
A jury convicted him in 1995 and a judge sentenced him to 60 years. He was to serve a minimum of 30 years without parole.
Boyer's family will be there Tuesday morning.
"He's got no regard for life," said Adams. "He dumped my sister here at the daycare center like a piece of trash."
Jervis will be transported to the Warrick County Jail on Monday evening.
