Interviews in school shooting case located

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – A prosecutor says key videotaped interviews in a school shooting case have been located.

The announcement comes after the attorney for Kenny Bartley Jr. filed a motion to dismiss charges against his client because it appeared that the interviews with surviving victims were missing.

Bartley is accused of taking a gun to Campbell County Comprehensive High School in 2005 when he was 14 years old. He pleaded guilty in 2007 to one count of second-degree murder and two counts of attempted second-degree murder but was later granted a new trial.

Prosecutor Lori Phillips-Jones told the Knoxville News Sentinel (http://bit.ly/1iGox8o) that the interviews were submitted as supplemental evidence on Monday. She said they weren’t missing, but it took a while to find them because there were several boxes of evidence.
