FRANKLIN, Ky. (AP) – A southern Kentucky man charged with fatally stabbing a neighbor will face a jury in November.

The Daily News reported (http://bit.ly/167HagT ) that Simpson Circuit Judge Janet Crocker set the case of 40-year-old Jerry Huff of Franklin for Nov. 20.

Huff is charged with murder and tampering with physical evidence in connection with the Dec. 28 death of 53-year-old Phillip Allen.
