Attorneys for alleged school shooter claim Marshall County School system tampering with witnesses

Posted: Updated:

MARSHALL COUNTY, KY -- Attorneys for Gabriel Parker, accused of a school shooting at Marshall County High School in January, have filed a motion claiming the school system is tampering with witnesses. 

The motion says the attorney hired by the Marshall County School System has told teachers not to cooperate with the defense.

The motion also accuses teachers of instructing students not to speak with Parker's attorneys. 

It says that numerous witnesses have been "reluctant to speak" to the defense team "due to interference" by the Marshall County School Board and its agents. 

Parker has been charged with two counts of murder and 14 counts of aggravated assault for the shooting that killed Bailey Nicole Holt and Preston Ryan Cope and wounded 14. 

A hearing on the motion has been scheduled for Nov. 30.
