Defense attorneys for Jessie Goslyn and Jarred T. Long told a Christian Circuit Court judge that they need time to examine case files recently provided by the commonwealth’s attorney’s office.

The two are accused of planning the murder of Goslyn’s husband, Vincent Gosyln, who was shot to death Feb. 3 on Fidelio Road.

Long’s and Jessie Goslyn’s hearings were kept separate because Goslyn’s defense didn’t want the two together in the same courtroom. They both have pretrial hearings set for Aug. 29.

In other court business:

  •  Donna Currey, a social worker who handled cases that ended in the deaths of two children, pleaded not guilty Wednesday during a hearing in Christian Circuit Court. Currey is charged with tampering with public records. She quit her job in October after officials accused her of falsifying public records.

Judge Andrew Self released Currey and returned her $10,000 bond. Currey’s defense attorney Bill Deatherage argued that, because Currey was a low flight risk, her release should not come with location restrictions.

However, Self ruled that Currey was only allowed to be away from home for court, work, medical and religious reasons.

  •  Christopher J. Walker, 26, one of the four men police believe robbed a Hopkinsville car dealership on Jan. 30, had a pretrial conference set for Aug. 8.
