Murder trial at 9amCT for Wellie Paul Grant
Grant is accused in June 10, 2006 churchyard shooting death of Rex L. Coffey
The jury trial of Commonwealth vs. Wellie Paul Grant starts at 9amCT, is scheduled for 9amCT, this morning, Wednesday, May 18, 2011 in Adair Circuit Court, Adair Judicial Center, 201 Campbellsville ST, Columbia, KY. Grant faces charges of 1) Murder, and 2) Fleeing or evading police, 1st degree.
The murder trial stems out of a sensational shooting case which occurred almost five years ago, on Saturday, June 10, 2006, at around 10pmCT, when prominent Columbia businessman Rex Coffey, owner of Rex's Cycle, was killed while on a church picnic at Beech Grove Separate Baptist Church, on KY 900 near Glens Fork, KY.
Grant was arrested in the remote Sand Lick Roard area in South Adair County, 12 hours later, after an intensive manhunt.
Lengthy delays related to Grant's competency to stand trial stretched the trial start date to almost 5 years after the shooting/fleeing incident.
