LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A Jefferson Circuit Court judge has denied another request to dismiss the murder case against Dejuan Hammond.
Hammond is charged with the March 23, 2009 murder of Troya Sheckles as she sat in Shelby Park. Sheckles was a witness for the Commonwealth in a murder case against Lloyd Hammond, the brother of Dejuan Hammond.
Dejuan Hammond's attorney has asked for the dismissal because it was learned the prosecutors had not turned over evidence to defense attorneys. Judge Angela McCormick Bisig declared a mistrial in April after the discovery of the evidence.
